AuthenticationManagerLDAP Error Message and BaseDN setting

Hi All,

We are currently getting the following error

ERROR AuthenticationManagerLDAP - Could not find user="nobody" with strategy="LDAP DC02"
host=something

Not sure what error is causing this error.

Is it a known error message that appears when Splunk does not successfully bind to AD?
Is it a LDAP-role mapping issue ?
Should I perhaps be looking at BaseDN/groupbaseDN configuration ?

The user "nobody" looks a bit suspicious.

Running; find /path/to/splunk/apps -iname *.meta -exec grep -il "nobody" {} ; gives me all objects owned by nobody and thus i can easily change it to an more appropriate context / user .
Hope it helps 🙂

The user 'nobody' is supposed to be for 'configuration items' that aren't assigned a user.

I'm experiencing the same errors, and I would also like to know why it occurs, and how to stop it.
