Simple bind failed error when trying to connect to Active Directory
If you use a secure connection to the LDAP server and you see an error like the following when trying to connect to Active Directory:
simple bind failed: ad.hostname.com:636
- Import the LDAP server public certificate directly into the Klocwork keystore (which should be <path_to_JVM_install>\_jvm\lib\security\cacerts).
This causes the certificate validation process at the Klocwork end to be bypassed, since you have decided to trust the LDAP server certificate by importing it into your list of trusted certificates.
- Ask your LDAP administrator to set this extension of your LDAP server certificate to non-critical.
