LDAP authentication for CLI

Not applicable

I got LDAP authentication working so that when logging into the Web GUI the microsoft active directory accounts works with no problems.  When a user logs into the CLI and tries using their LDAP account the system log shows invalid username/password.  the username syntax is <title>.<firstname>.<lastname>.

Please correct me if I am misunderstanding your issue. A user is able to login through the Web GUI not through the CLI with same login credentials?

that is correct.

Can you please try the following -

1)Login into the cli using a local account and run this command "tail follow yes mp-log authd.log"

2)Now open web-ui session and try to login using the LDAP credentials and observe the login process ( especially the user credentials and their format ) in the cli log.

3)Now open another cli session and try to login using LDAP credentials and see how the logs are different when compared to the login using web-ui, You can also find the reason here for the authentication failure in the logs

I did it and you can see where it has issues, just don't understand it yet.

That is weird, In both cases PA sent the same format to the LDAP server. Which software version is this ? Did you do any software upgrades and that caused this issue ?

If this issue is happening after upgrade to 4.1.8, please open a ticket with support as this looks buggy.

Any update onnthis issue as i am also facing the same issue
