Yes, I think so. But narrowing that down has been the challenge and it's
extremely difficult to put the blame squarely in one corner.
So, my question has been what exactly is the connectivity issue. Is it
W2008, Illiad or LDAP?
Since it works on port 389 I'd like to rule out ILLiad but I'm struck by
how a refresh on the browser allows the authentication.
The windows server and LDAP are managed by different groups, and are
different stacks, windows 2008 server vs Novell on linux.
Since LDAP is binding I assume the problem is with the Windows
configuration or certificate, or store.
To answer your last questions.
The servers are in the same data center, and an ldapadmin test from the
windows server is successful.
This is a new Windows server with the latest version of ILLiad. We bumped
up servers from W2003 to W2008
There's not much revealing in the logs, folks from Atlas System and OCLC
have looked at them.
