Actually you pointed exactly on the problem : this LDAP was using rfc2307 but I ignored it !
Thanks a lot, now I can login with users, that's almost perfect !

Is it possible now to search for groups instead of users / manipulate groups in the web interface ?
In that case, the dn would be different, is it possible to specify multiple dn namespaces ?

One quick question unrelated to this topic (as I can see an @redhat in your mail) : I'm trying to set up in parallel a RHEV server with only the free 60 days evaluation, do you have any idea where I should ask for help (as support only applies if you pay, if I understand), a similar mailing list or something ?

>for some reason it can't find the user 'myuser'.

Yes, I changed all informations about users, domain name etc for confidentiality.

>Is that searchbase(-b param) ok?


>Does 'cn=mysearchuser' user have appropriate permissions to see users?
