What I am trying to achieve is to have Websphere 6.1 use Active Directory users authentication.

Websphere is running on Windows 2008 R2.

What I've done already:

  1. Succesfully setup a federated repository for Windows Active Directory (LDAP);
  2. Create a realm definition for the federated repository previously defined;
  3. Set the realm definition as the current real definition.
  4. Stop the Websphere service.

When I attempt to start the Websphere service again, it crashes with the following stacktrace:

------Start of DE processing------ = [9/3/10 2:36:14:133 PDT] , key = com.ibm.websphere.security.EntryNotFoundException com.ibm.ws.security.registry.UserRegistryImpl.createCredential 824 Exception =

Dump of callerThis = Object type = com.ibm.ws.security.registry.UserRegistryImpl com.ibm.ws.security.registry.UserRegistryImpl@68a068a0

Anybody maybe has a hint on this?

I followed the exact steps described in the IBM Infocenter for setting this up.

Thanks in advance for the help.

This element of one of the first lines: .UserRegistryImpl.createCredential makes me wonder if either you have an SSL/clear text issue, or else a password issue with your account. The usual LDAP suspects.
