ldap was upgraded to windows 2016 and now no one can log into UIM v.5.61


Article ID: 209603


Updated On:


DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


Hub is not getting a port on start up which is preventing users from logging in. Nothing shows in the logs, even at log level 5 for controller and hub.

NMS 5.61, UMP 2.61(v1).


UIM (NMS) is running on Windows 2008R2. NMS 5.61 was never certified for Windows 2016 LDAP.

There is a defect in hub 5.82 where if you set active = no in the ldap section of the hub.cfg it still tries to use it.


Release : 5.61

Component : UIM - HUB


NMS 5.61 is not compatible with ldap 2016.

Replace the ldap section in all the hub.cfg files and replaced with the default version from hub.cfx (see example below).

restarted robot

If you have another 2008 ldap server you can configure it normally on each hub probe.

If not, you can create local nimbus users in Infrastructure Manager.

Recommend building a 20.3.3 or later lab and test customer scripts, then migrate to production.


example of the ldap section form the hub.cfx file. This needs to replace the same section in the hub.cfg

Additional Information

NMS 5.61 is END OF SUPPORT. This is best effort and customer should build a new UIM 20.3.3+ as there is no upgrade path from this version of UIM.
