Thanks Jayan,
 
I eventually realised my problem!! I had the 2 authentication methods in the plugin list on different lines, but hadn't added a "\" terminator to the end of the first line - I've done that now and now I'm getting the normal logon screen.
 
My LDAP login still isn't working, but I'm guessing (or is that hoping!) that this is just a configuration error - I will take another look at my config info (I have tested all the config stuff in the LDAP browser and it seems OK) and see if I can work out what the problem is.
 
At the moment I'm just using my own account for the AD lookup (I'm working on my DEV system at the moment) - this is the config I'm using for this (my username followed by the context where it is):
 
msad.username = CN=mw6,ou=enabled,ou=staff,dc=ad,dc=stir,dc=ac,dc=uk
- should this work (it appears to work fine in the LDAP browser)?
 
One thing I did notice that surprised me was that the failed login showed up in the logs as being in LDAPAuthentication rather than ADAuthentication -
 
2007-04-27 12:17:38,486 INFO  org.dspace.eperson.LDAPAuthentication @ anonymous:session_id=B4566E227087E0FBE7F4EFB1EA938915:ip_addr=139.153.92.71:auth:LDAP Query of AD for User Failed
Is this to be expected, or have I done something else silly?
 
My config info is:
 
plugin.sequence.org.dspace.eperson.AuthenticationMethod = \
    org.dspace.eperson.ADAuthentication, \
    org.dspace.eperson.PasswordAuthentication
 
Any insights or thoughts welcome.
 
Thanks,
 
Mike

Check

 

plugin.sequence.org.dspace.eperson.AuthenticationMethod = \

        org.dspace.eperson.ADAuthentication,  org.dspace.eperson.PasswordAuthentication

 

 

ldap.enable = false

 

this will bring the normal password screen for you to enter uid and password.

Subject: [Dspace-tech] AD Authentication and Choose login page?

 

Hi,

 

I am trying to get Active Directory LDAP integration up and running with DSpace v1.4.1.

 

Jayan Chirayath Kurian has kindly provided me with a copy of an ADAuthentication.java plugin written by Kyle Brenthall (along with implementation instructions - thanks Kyle, by the way :-) ).

 

Following Kyle's instructions to Jayan, I have added the plug-in code, made the required code additions to Utils.java, added the config info to dspace.cfg, and added ADAuthentication to the authentication plugin sequence (as the first option followed by PasswordAuthentication).

 

However, when I now try to access "My DSpace" to test it out, rather than being presented with a login page, I am getting a "Choose a Login Method" page, which asks me to 'choose one of these ways to login' - however there are no options to choose from, so I am not able to proceed.

 

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong, or what I should be tweaking in order to get past this screen?

 

In his email to Jayan, Kyle says "The module uses the 'normal' screen to gather the username and password", so this is what I'm trying to get at . . . .

 

Any thoughts, suggestions, or pointers welcome!

 

Cheers,

 

Mike
