Thanks Sean.

Ok I've attaché my config as a .7z archive, with my password as XXXXXXXX for security.

In the attribute resolver.xml I also have:

I'm trying to authenticate with our Microsoft Active Directory service, so the following configs are relevant:


edu.vt.middleware.ldap.jaas.LdapLoginModule required
        baseDn="ou=people, dc=jmu, dc=ac, dc=uk"
// 16/11/2012 D.Wynne Have to BIND with correct user credentials
        bindDn`"cn=XXXXXXXX at<mailto:cn=XXXXXXXX at>"

How about your useFilter ?  Would be best if you posted the entire config

Typically for AD installations, you may be using :   sAMAccountname={0}  or mail={0} or userprincipalname={0}
