Introduction:

Before storing CA Single Sign-On policies in LDAP Policy Store, the LDAP schema needs to be extended.

 

Question:

I got the following message from the smldapsetup utility. What is wrong?

 

LDAPError: nnnnn. LDAP error nnnnn. Unknown Error
Unable to create SiteMinder LDAP schema

 

("nnnnn" is a decimal number varies on your environment.)

 

Answer:

We can extend LDAP schema with the smldapsetup utility or during the installation of the Policy Server for certain types of LDAP servers but we need to do it manually for other types of LDAP directories along with the Policy Server installation guide.

The "Unable to create SiteMinder LDAP schema" message is shown by the smldapsetup utility for unsupported types of LDAP directories or supported LDAP directories with incorrect access parameters.

Please confirm that you are following appropriate instructions for the type of your LDAP server and it is configured properly.
