User Directory Problems - Macromedia Contribute Connection Administrtion

    Default User Directory Problems

    I have CPS 1.11 installed on Linux and we have user's connecting via Contribute
    Client 3.11.

    Sometimes when adding a user into a role the user's name is not shown in the
    Role list after adding. What shows up instead is the uid for that particular
    user. The user is obviously in the user directory, or we wouldn't be able to
    add them to a role. In parenthesis next to the uid is the following: "not
    found in User Directory".

    When I log in to the CPS interface, I can search for that user and they show
    up as well as being able to authenticate as that user for the test.

    Any ideas?

    What is the value of the Connection timeout that you have specified in
    the Active Directory settings tab in the CPS admin console. The error what you
    are seeing is because that CPS is timing out with the Active Directory. Hence
    try to increase this value in the CPS admin console and see whether the problem
    occurs again.

    Hope this helps,

    Sudharshan,

    Thanks for the information. I changed the timeout on the CPS admin console to
    be 300 seconds (5 minutes) from being 60 seconds. I also added in attributes
    to the Group Search (without specifying a Branch DN) which immensely speeded up
    the search time since it no longer executes a wildcard search for a group.

    However none of this seems to affect the problem I am seeing.

    Okay, new wrinkle. Apparently the change to the timeout fixed half the
    problem. I have been adding users to rolls that have had no users previously
    assigned. The newly added users have been showing up correctly.

    So the question remains: how do I repair the broken users?
