WebSphere Portal and OpenLDAP

Spent a few days relearning how to get WP6 and OpenLDAP to play nicely together.

It's been a wee while since I wrote this document, and things have changed somewhat.

I'll make an effort to update the document in the next few days but, in the meantime, please let me know if you're trying ( and perhaps struggling ) to make it work.


*UPDATE 31/3/2010*

Here's two documents which are no longer available on the LotusChannel site: - - WebSphere Portal 6 and OpenLDAP Together.pdf up OpenLDAP for use with WebSphere Portal 6.pdf

I didn't know about the "best-effort" support for other ldap servers.

That's good news, and technically thrilling.

Btw I don't expect to be using openLDAP. ITDS is so damn good I'd never use anything else (if possible). Even when domino is already available I suggest adding an ITDS server if you're looking to external users.
Ciao Daniele, yes, I'd agree re ITDS, but there are situations where one might wish to use another LDAP, so OpenLDAP is a good option - I've also used SunOne in the past, regards, Dave
I swear we got this working during a POC at Logicais a year or so ago - it's definitely possible!
Jon, yes, we did - or it may have been SunOne LDAP. It was a customer down in the South-West, regards, Dave
Hi dave,

I am currently trying to integrate Portal6.1 and OpenLDAP and get stuck: ConfigEngine complains about a "LoginAccount" sub entity which is not defined in the wim config.
Also your document from Lotuschannel seems to be deleted.
Do you have a hint?
Thank you!

I'm trying to install an IBM WebSphere Portal 6.1 in an Linux machine and I want to use OpenLDAP as LDAP Server. At this time, I failed install it :(

I was very glad when I found your site but the referred document isn't available. Please, can you tell me how can I get it?

Many thanks.

Here you go.


You save me :)

Thank you!
