LDAP Disabling anonymous binds stops Netware client from doing contextless login
Netware Client 4.9.0 SP2
Proxy_User has been created with blank password.
I have been instructed by our auditors to disable anonymous binds on the LDAP server object.
When I do this the LDAP contextless login feature of the Netware client stops working.
I've been reading the documentation and tids on ldap and feel as if I'm going in circles... :)
Can someone lend a hand, or point me to a good, complete document that discusses LDAP configuration, security, requirements, etc?
Thanks in advance.
Network / Email Admin...Slow login with LDAP Contextless login enabled
Has anyone run into the problem were users take over a minute to login?
If the user does a logout and then login again without restarting the
machine it takes 10 seconds.
So the problem is only when the computer is restarted.
If I disable the LDAP Contextless login in NWClient 4.92Sp2 the login
takes 10 seconds and the problem is gone...
The environment is NW6.5 SP6 ( I know, we will upgrade to SP8 as soon
as possible :-)
eDir is 188.8.131.52 and will also be upgraded asap.

Is it possible to have BOTH LDAP Contextless login AND RDN login available
AT THE SAME TIME? I'm asking because I would like to use contextless login
but it would generate far less helpdesk call if I could still retain RDN
login. When I tried it, it gave an LDAP error when I entered a RDN (ie,
sylvain.adm instead of just sylvain) using the NW4.9SP1 client on Windows
Not to my knowledge; only the "common name" portion goes into the
"Username:" field and the actual context of that object goes into the

I work for a school board in Ontario, and we are putting in 600 Windows
7 workstations this summer. We are having problems getting ldap to work.
We have been using the �lgncl.zip� files from cool solutions to get
contextless login to work on our WinXP machines. That doesn�t work on
the Win7 machines.
On the LDAP contextless login tab we have put in about 7 server and
tree ip addresses with the defaults. We created a reg file that we
change on the image depending on which school server we want to login to

We are having trouble figuring out why we are suddenly having an issue
with contextless login. We are not aware of any changes to the server
(netware 6.5- SP8). Every thing was fine at the end of the day
yesterday. Now, today, a box pops up that reads:
LDAP Contextless Login: No LDAP server specified
We've rebooted the server, but no luck. Any ideas as to what we can do
to get this working?

Is there any solution to the problem stated in subject? LDAP contextless logins can not work in a 802.1X WLAN solution since the client does NOT

Currently we disable LDAP contextless logins and "Workstation Only" flag for workstations that need WLAN access, is there any better way of

I am having problems with LDAP contextless login. I had it working with
4.9sp1a and then it stopped. I get a user not found. I have tried several
servers all of which worked before. I can also query those servers with an
LDAP query tool. Any ideas?

When you try to use unsecure LDAP does it work then ?
yes, this works okay.

I've recently set up contextless login. We have a small tree, one

other, i.e I can log in as a user in the parent and one child

Unfortunately, we are in the process of migrating our mail services from
GroupWise to Exchange. In the process I have removed GroupWise from the
desktop/server installed Outlook. After reboot LDAP Contextless login no
longer responds. I do not receive an error, the client just fails to
query LDAP for the context of the user.

We would like ot speak with someone on some "hidden" or undocumented
settings for LDAP Contextless Login.
We need to search for users that are NOT inetorgperson objectclass.
We would also like to NOT populate the "tree" name from the ldap server.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

We have just migrated our 3 most important servers from Netware 5.1 SP8 to
Netware 6.5 SP4. When we were on Netware 5.1 we where using the DSCAT
contextless login, and have now migrated to using LDAP, however we are
finding that some clients are getting the "cannot find tree or server" error
message when trying to login. We have also found that if we then drop down
the "advanced" page of the client and enter the address of one of our
servers in the server box that the login then works correctly.
