Novell SecureLogin 6.0 Client


When running SLMANAGER.EXE it gives an error: "Error initialising LDAP (IP:)


The LDAP server that is being accessed is not allowing for anonymous binds.

Enable anonymous binds on the LDAP server by modifying the LDAP server object, go to the other tab and set the LDAPBindRestrictions value to 0. In iManager go to the Directory Administration Role and then to the Modify Object Task. Find the LDAP server object in question and go to the other tab. Look for the LDAPBindRestrictions attribute and modify the attribute to have a value of 0.

If this does not fix the problem, take an LDAP trace from the server to see what the slmanager utility's anonymous bind has for an error.
