I'm trying to create a report (a list of users basically) from a Microsoft AD LDS on Windows 2008. The solution c2016008 describes a way to connect to a AD source using NT authentication, which isn't an viable option in this case. I figure I could use the JNDI-interface to connect and I added <JNDIConnectionFactory>com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory</JNDIConnectionFactory> to CRConfig.xml (as it is the same class our Java application uses succesfully to read data from the source server).
I the connection window I give details as
JNDI Provider URL ldap://hostname:389/
JNDI username CN=amd,OU=User_Accounts,O=Something,C=Else
JNDI password (the user account's password)
Initial context /
I cannot make the connection to the service even with the designer for the first time to do anything. If my username and password are correct after pressing the next-button I get the Data Source Name: -dialogue box, but there isn't anything to choose there. If I press then "Finish" I gen an error message "Details: Invalid connection". What configurations am I missing? I didn't manage to find any other directions to make such on report except the one mentioned in the solution c2016008. The environment is CR 2008.
