Situation

How to restrict ldap login while allowing access to GroupWise mail
Block network / PC authentication, permit GroupWise authentication

Resolution

To restrict LDAP logins for a specific time period, see Configuring Login Time Resitrctions for Remote Users.

Please follow the steps below to allow access to GroupWise during a restricted login time:

  1. Switch the User Authentication Method from Bind to Compare on the LDAP Authentication settings of the LDAP Server:
    • (GroupWise 2014) GroupWise Administration Console | System | LDAP Servers | Select the LDAP Server to Edit | Select the LDAP Authentication tab | switch from Bind to Compare.
    • (GroupWise 8 - 2012) Console One | Tools | GroupWise System Operations | LDAP Servers | Select the LDAP Server to Edit | Switch from Bind to Compare
    • If any changes were made, restart the POA(s).

  2. Verify GroupWise Mobility Service is set to GroupWise Authentication Mode:

Cause

LDAP Server configuration for user authentication using bind instead of compare prevents access to groupwise mail during restricted login time.
