I installed seafile, which worked quite good. We decided to use users from our Active Directory. Unfortunately our AD is organized in a way that below root DN we created ou’s for all of our departments and user’s are located below each of these ou’s. Since all of our users should be able to use Seafile, we need to use our root DN as BASE DN within ccnet.conf.
Unfortunately this fails. After some troubleshooting we saw following bold face note in installation documentation: “You cannot use the root DN (e.g. dc=example,dc=com) as BASE.”
We don’t understand where this limitation comes from, since tools like ldapsearch have no problems finding all users starting the search in root DN.
Does anyone have an idea how to resolve our issue? We would like to find a solution which does not need to rebuild our active directory extensively.
