Invalid LDAP server: Referral

I have configured my FortiGate 60D wtih FortiOS 5.2.2 to use AD as a LDAP server.  When I click <test> it claims the test is successful; however any real lookup fails with the error: Invalid LDAP server: Referral

 

What is this error trying to tell me and how do I fix it?

Hello,

 

I'd suggest to recheck BaseDN + user(UPN/LDAP format)/password if regular bind is used and that the used user has enough rights on LDAP to read baseDN and ask LDAP server. As it's AD, have you temporarily and for troubleshooting tried to use regular bind with domain admin ?

 

Kind regards, Tomas

Hi there

 

The user account is a Domain Admin and that didn't work.

 

We are starting to suspect a problem with the AD configuration, as this is a somewhat migrated and distributed AD. Other AD issues have been discovered.
