I know there are quite a lot of these answers allready, BUT in my case the error message:
ERROR ScopedLDAPConnection - strategy="*" Error binding to LDAP reason "Invalid credentials"
is not preventing me from logging in as a LDAP user. Authentification works fine,
in production and testing environment
Did anyone ever experienced the same?
Are you getting that error message while configuring LDAP for your splunk environment. And you have already tested that your generic user credential are working fine by logging as domain user.
if this is the case then:
Make sure you have all the correct details required for this configuration. You can get this by contacting your AD administrator.
Host: AD server IP/Hostname OR Load balancer URL.
Bind DN: distinguishedName of that Generic ID/user. in your case i think your user is "splunktest".
Bind DN Password:
User Base DN: This is nothing but distinguishedName of container under which all domain users are listed.
Group Base DN: This is nothing but distinguishedName of container under which all your groups are listed.
Share your configuration details if you don't mind.
