You were correct. Thank you.
Our Systems folks originally did the mod in Auth_with_ldap.pm in the
pre-RC1 release to address the bind vs. auth question, however I now
read that 3.0 (final release) handles this automatically (http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php?id=en:development:ldap
)? Unfortunately our Systems folks are too busy to assist us again
after the upgrade. Does anyone else have some LDAP experience and
could help us mod/reconfigure? In testing our LDAP from luma and
phpldapadmin, successful binds can occur only if the scope is set to
subtree. If only the base is specified we get bind failures.
