Issue/Introduction

Trouble while setting up Harvest LDAP authentication. Which tools could help?

 

Environment

CA Harvest Software Change Manager

Resolution

Two suggested ways would be:

1- Harvest command utility hauthtst.  This command line utility tests the Authentication Server API independently of a CA Harvest SCM broker or RTserver.

It is a stand-alone LDAP connectivity test program.

-ldapdebuglevel= <int> à enables verbose information

1a- There is a tool called "LDAPDiag" that is available at the CA Harvest Communities website.  Tue Tip: Helpful stuff for LDAP diagnostics

The name of the file is LDAPDiagV101.zip. It is a tool useful during LDAP integration configuration.

This zip contains a single install executable that will install to C:\LDAPDiag directory by default and place a single desktop icon called LDAPDiag. This utility can be used to load the server's HServer.arg, and then it will automatically create the hauthtst full syntax in the lower pane. You can then try to execute the hauthtst syntax by pressing the [!] button, or you can copy and paste the hauthtst to a cmd prompt window and work with it there.

This utility will only install and run on a Windows platform.

2- 3rd party GUI tool LDAP browsers such as SysinternalsSuite Active Directory Explorer v1.52

 LDAP browsers could be used to verify your LDAP settings and that the user indeed exists in LDAP.
