Resolve issue where LDAP and User Website no longer function in Officemail

print
Operating System: Windows 2008 64bit

 

Issue

User Website, Admin Website and LDAP importer ceased to function after Windows Server security patched were installed.

The updates were installed on a specific date.

Cause

Security patch KB195398 changes the way the username is expected in the LDAP connected configuration files.

Resolution

Change is required to the:
- User web.config
- Admin web.config
- LDAP.config

From:
……….. connectionUsername ="officemail" connectionPassword ="Tommy007" connectionProtection ="None"/>
                                                          
To:
 ……….. connectionUsername ="Domain\officemail" connectionPassword ="Tommy007" connectionProtection ="None"/>

The username requires a Domain\Username structure from now on.
