Panorama 4.1.8 LDAP Failure

Not applicable

Having upgraded our Panorama from 4.1.7 to 4.1.8 - we can no longer use the LDAP user authentication.

The user constantly gets "invalid username or password" (same message on the Panorama) - yet this worked without any problems with 4.1.7

On Panorama - one can see that in the LDAP profile - the Base option is never getting populated (dropdown option is only "none" rather than domain name).

Is this a new "feature" ?




@ Edwin,

I would expect this to be a general LDAP issue, because I'm not able to have the LDAP server profile to see the AD correctly.



Hi guys, I was able to reproduce the same behavior my lab testing. The LDAP server profile is now (in 4.1.8)  not able to see the server correctly. The LDAP server is auto populating the base server info in the earlier version but not in 4.1.8. This looks buggy. Please open a ticket with support.

same problem with Kerberos :smileyminus:

pretty sure kerberos had an issue all along though - i was advised by TAC to use ldap/ad instead of kerb some time ago, and that fixed the issues i had then - these ldap issues now I only noticed in admin-auth, I didnt test on ssl-vpn auth before downgrading, but I dont use ldap in rules, I use user/groups but that is provided by the DC agents i believe, I dont think that was affected but I didnt test it all through

Please try removing the "domain" entry in the ldap/kerberos profile, this can cause issues with the actual autentication
