LDAP: Active Directory errors

I was helping someone debug logging into Active Directory with LDAP.  I had performed a network trace and the reply to the BIND request stated:

resultCode: invalidCredentials (49)
errorMessage: 80090308: LdapErr: DSID-0C090334, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 525, vece.

A little Google search turned up the following:

Here is a list of Active Directory errors:
525 - user not found
52e - invalid credentials
530 - not permitted to logon at this time
532 - password expired
533 - account disabled
701 - account expired
773 - user must reset password

LDAP: error code 49.

Hmm, looking at the LDAP bindRequest, which was a simple bind, found that the user had passed domain/userid for the login account.  I hadn’t noticed before, that he had used a forward slash (/) instead of a back slash (\).  I had him retry and sure enough all was well.

IBM Widget

Just found this today.  There is now an IBM widget that runs on the Yahoo Widget engine.

It appears to have been made by IBM.  The gallery list David Leip but the about page list several others:



What I found interesting is that this widget allows you to search for IBMers.  I know we have the search page somewhere on the public IBM site, but this just makes it so much easier, provided you have the widget of course.

In all it is a nice looking widget.
