Reporter is unable to connect to the LDAP server.
The connection to the LDAP server fails when using Linux 64 bit Reporter.
When the test button is used, for the LDAP realm connection wizard, they get the error: "A connection could not be made to the host server”
in reviewing the Journal files that Reporter is unable to locate libldap.so “Failed to locate LDAP library 'libldap.so'”.
On the LINUX server, running reporter, we ran the “find” command - # find / -name libldap* - and could not see the file libldap.so, but we could see the file libldap-2.3.so.
Here's the results of the FIND.:
There was also some in the powerbroker directories
Linux version information:
Details of this RPM:
Using this RPM command we see this detail.
rpm -qfi /usr/lib/libldap.so
Name : openldap-devel Relocations: (not relocatable)
Upgrade the RPM version for this library.
Check to see if the libldap.so is a 32, or 64 bit version of the file. If it is a 32 bit, and the host is 64 bit, we'll need to rename it, then find and place the right file here. Follow these steps to do rename it.
As we don't need a specific version of this file, we recomend that you create a symbolic link to the right file, as per this command:
NOTE for the Geeks amongst us:
Question: What is exact description of what file it needs ,and where it needs to see it, so the Reporter LDAP service/daemon can operate properly?
Reporter will search for the library in the following order:
