I have the following setup: - LDAP Server from Mac OS X running with default configuration - JIRA Standlone installation

I want to: Use LDAP for user authentication for jura

username: cn=diradmin,dc=my,dc=domain,dc=com

password: password of the diradmin

I quadruppel checked the password, but I always get the [LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials]; nested exception is javax.naming.AuthenticationException: [LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials] as an error message.

Is there anything I have to do on the server side to allow the LDAP authentication by some third party app? Do I have to use the diradmin at all here? or can I use any user? what group has the user to be in? I tried to do the same thing with hudson (build server). And there I get the exact same error message. So it's not a jira issue. It must be a configuration issue.
