3295439 - Setting up LDAP with two DN Lookup URLs - SAP ASE


  • LDAP in SAP ASE works with one DN Lookup URL, but now it looks like we need a second DN Lookup URL.
  • We are not able to add the second URL search on the primary server:
    • This works for our normal users to authenticate their id via LDAP within SAP ASE:
         sp_ldapadmin 'set_dn_lookup_url', 'ldaps://,DC=xxx,DC=xxxxx,DC=com?distinguishedName?sub?cn=*' 
         sp_ldapadmin 'check_login', 'appuserid'   <-- we can see the normal user ID, but not the elevated IDs.
    • This works for elevated ID's that aren't in the above path:
         sp_ldapadmin 'set_dn_lookup_url', 'ldaps://,OU=Administrators,DC=xxx,DC=xxxxxx,DC=com?distinguishedName?sub?cn=*'
         sp_ldapadmin 'check_login', 'adminid'    <-- we can see the elevated ID, but not the normal IDs.
  • Is it possible to set up two DN Lookup URLs on the primary LDAP server?
