Error returned on MSL/ LDAP login
LDAP Error 49 - Failed Authentication


Both of the ofollowing were necessary:
1 - correct configuration errors in IDM driver.
2 - modify Universal Password Policy to synch NDS with UP. Docs say this is not necessary, but because some administrative tools require them to be synchronized we recommend synching the NDS password and the Universal Password as a"best practice.

1 – AD password and UP were not synchronizing properly because of a misconfigured IDM driver.
2 - UP was not synchronizing with eDirectory password.
