Issue/Introduction

The Invalid DN syntax (34) means the LDAP server did not receive a full DN or that the correct prefix was not specified, such as CN instead of UID, which results in the LDAP server not receiving a correct DN.

Environment

Release:
Component: ACFLDP TSSLDP

Resolution

The CA-LDAP Server determines the user id to use by looking for cn= as the very first RDN in the DN. The Invalid DN syntax (34) message can occur if just the userid is entered in the "User DN" rather than cn=userid.

To address the problem be sure to specify cn=userid in the 'User DN' text box in JXPLORER screen.

Note: in place of "userid" substitute the desired userid.

Details on the the "USER DN" specification for the JXplorer browser can be found at the JXplorer website.

Details on CA-LDAP can be found in the CA LDAP Server for z/OS Administrator Guide
