Can't get LDAP to work
Posted: 02-19-2004, 04:07 PM
successfully connected and have been using Entourage with our Exchange 2000
server since the Office 10.1.4 update came out last year. I can send and
receive mail, all my contacts and calendar events are synchronized--I can
even get the "free/busy" scheduling info to appear.
What I can't figure out is LDAP. I cannot get Directory Services to work.
We have tried everything, and I've read every related article I can find.
Yes, I've tried everything suggested by http://www.entourage.mvps.org. Many
times. I've played with every LDAPv2 and LDAPv3 setting on my iMac. I've
found the Microsoft support bulletin ("Microsoft Knowledge Base Article -
824887") that describes the error I get ("-3260: LDAP Server error, a
connection failure has occurred"). I've checked with our system
administrator here, and everything that we can think of appears to be
running OK on the Exchange 2000 server.
We've tried different port settings, authentication settings... You name it.
I've scoured every newsgroup I could think of through Google Groups. I've
tried every suggestion I found--but nothing works.
What are we overlooking? Does anyone have suggestions? Is there a switch on
the Exchange server that you've found that's not obvious---that needs to be
enabled for LDAP to work? Again, remember that everything else about the
Entourage / Exchange connection is working fine for me, INCLUDING
"free/busy" scheduling information.
Any help greatly appreciated.
