LDAP on Domino with iPhone (iOS8x) - can it work?
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
   

Hi guys.

May be you can help me with this.
I need to provide users with ability to access Domino Directory (primary or additional) through iPhone LDAP account. Today I've spent a whole day on that and failed eventually. Sad feeling.

At the beginning the task looked extremely easy:
1) enable SSL on Domino server for Internet LDAP users ;
2) quick adjusting of Server document and Configuration document regarding LDAP task;
3) run "load ldap" from Domino console and enjoy;

I downloaded LDAP Admin (just a first link among search results) for testing purposes and made sure that everything worked perfectly. Here are a few proving screenshots.




Then I configured LDAP account on iPhone 5 (iOS8x) using the same parameters as on screen above and spent long time with the gadget after that. Whatever I tried to do - nothing helped. I always received a message "Unable to verify account information".


I don't want to describe here everything I tried but it was really a lot. I feel like I tried all possible combinations of all configuration fields in different state.

I managed to make it work only in one case - when I allowed Anonymous access to Directory on Domino and remove User Name and Password from iPhone LDAP Account configuration.


However such configuration couldn't stay, I couldn't let everyone in Internet access corporate Domino Directory. So the only one option for me was with authentication enabled but it refused to work.

Eventually I found two threads in Internet where people complained about similar (or even the same) issues. It seems the issues started with iOS7x and still weren't resolved.
Here are link1 and link2. These two posts were made in 2013 so probably something changed since then.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions I can try.

Strange decision within IBM Verse update for June of 2017 on Android devices

Hi IBM released a new update for IBM Verse in June 2017 - here is a link to "what's new". There is a new feature for Android about: Verse for Android: Certificate-based authentication However I don't think the way it works is correct. See my story below... Accordingly to documentation there are three authentication options supported by IBM Verse on Android devices: Traditional username/passwordCertificate-only authenticationCertificate and username/passwordOne of my customers had a foll

Hi I want to share one strange thing that happened to me today. I have reinstalled IBM Notes 9.01 but did it a bit unusually: 1) I uninstalled IBM Notes and cleaned up all files and folders which usually stay after uninstallation. 2) Then I installed IBM Notes 9.01 and FP7 but when I wanted to install Extension Library from openntf.org I realized that I forgot to enable Domino Designer and Domino Administrator options during setup. So I run installer again, chose option "Modify", enabled Do

How to set Workspace as default homepage in IBM Notes client
Wed, Oct 26th 2016 11:22a   Yuriy Pastovenskyy
Hi Recently I've got the task to set up Workspace as default homepage in IBM Notes client for about 400 users. Googling didn't really help - suggestion from IBM I found looked crazy and I didn't want to mess with it. My hope on Domino policies didn't work either - not sure, may be I missed something. However I found another interesting thing that can be very helpful for resolving this task. Database Bookmark.nsf (where Workspace is actually located) contains form "WPDiscoverChange" wi
