What is the LDAP logon ID syntax for my directory?

The LDAP logon syntax varies from system to system. This brief outline will show the specific format for each system.

Active Directory/Exchange 20xx

For Active Directory you can use your windows 2000 account name found under the Account tab in user administration. In this case you do not have to format it with LDAP information (cn=, dc= etc).

For example:
administrator@dirwiz.com

Lotus Notes

Lotus Notes is a direct translation of the FULL user id. There is only one Organization field, all other structure fields are usually Organizational Unit fields. Examples:

Lotus LDAP
Eric Nichols cn=Eric Nichols
Eric Nichols/DirWiz cn=Eric Nichols,o=DirWiz
Eric Nichols/Products/DirWiz cn=Eric Nichols,ou=Products,o=DirWiz
Eric Nichols/Development/Products/DirWiz cn=Eric Nichols,ou=Development,ou=Products,o=DirWiz

Netscape/iPlanet

Typically you should use the Directory Manager DN as the Logon ID.

For example: cn=Directory Manager

NDS

Typically the NDS logon ID translates nicely to LDAP. There is only one Organization field, all other structure fields are usually Organizational Unit fields. Examples:

= NDS = LDAP
Eric Nichols cn=Eric Nichols
Eric Nichols.DirWiz cn=Eric Nichols,o=DirWiz
Eric Nichols.Products.DirWiz cn=Eric Nichols,ou=Products,o=DirWiz
Eric Nichols./Development.Products.DirWiz cn=Eric Nichols,ou=Development,ou=Products,o=DirWiz
