I am trying to execute a ldapsearch command with a -w option for password. The
problem occurs when I have an extended ASCII char in the password like the
British Pound symbol "£" (ascii number 163) embedded in the password string.
Are extended ASCII chars allowed in password string? I get the following error
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
additional info: 80090308: LdapErr: DSID-0C090334, comment:
AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e, vece
I understand that this means that the password is invalid. For example, if I
have userID "Guest_01" and password "Test" then ldapsearch will work,
but if I
have userID "Guest_01" and passworrd "Test_£" then ldapsearch fails
I have tried putting the -w password in double quotes and with no quotes. When
password is -w Test or -w"Test" it works fine but when I use -w Test£ or
-w"Test£", it fails.
Thank you for your assistance. I am a developer who fixes bugs and ldap stuff
is new to me for maintenance.
