Unable to authenticate user to GlobalProtect using OpenLDAP

L1 Bithead

i've configured the LDAP profile, Authentication profile, User-ID Mapping, GP Portal and Gateway.


But when i use a user from the 'mapped-group', the globalprotect gave me 'authentication failed'


Please advice. TQ

Have you actually validated the authentication profile that you're using by running the test authentication authentication-profile  command and verified that this is working properly? You should also verify in the logs the actual failure reason being documented by the firewall. 

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I've checked by running the command and there's no problem here.


After doing more research, it appears that the settings on Authentication Profile, Portal and Gateway do not play nice with the 'ou=people,dc=domain,dc=local' as 'source user'. GlobalProtect connection will show 'Authentication Failed' with this setting.


But when i changed this to 'all' or 'any' on Authentication Profile, Portal and Gateway, GlobalProtect connection using the user 'dpot' works without any issue.


Please refer to the following screen shots;

Perhaps you have any idea why?
