Luminis schema with external LDAP

Submitted by anglarma on Tue, 07/10/2018 - 11:04


I'm having an issue adding the Luminis schema to an external LDAP. I'm using openLDAP. The schema file that comes with Luminis uses an oid containing letters, lpSghePerson-oid. However it seems openLDAP requires the numericoid. Luminis uses openDS/DJ which allows for non-numeric characters, although it breaks the LDAP standard and openLDAP is more strict. Has anyone else come across this issue? Is there a registered oid? I'm pretty sure I can just make on up but I've seen warnings against it.

Can anyone help me with this error? Issue RESOLVED

Hi all,
After much searching and collaboration with the team, we have Luminis 53 up and running in our test environment.

I am executing the script and am encountering the following error:
Cannot read the bind response from the server. The port you are using may require a secured communication (--useSSL). The connection to the Directory Server was closed before the bind response could be read (id=10748693)
This is on Step 2 of Any suggestions on how to get around this?

LMG and Glassfish sans LDAP

Submitted by jdryden on Wed, 12/09/2015 - 11:10

At my institution, we are preparing to move away from Luminis, but wish to keep LMG for processing Banner/LDI events for our Blackboard system. We have chosen Glassfish MQ as the messaging platform, using the "non-ldap" alternative (file-system JNDI context) as detailed in Does anyone have experience with this setup? I'm having problems connecting blackboard via the file-based java.naming.provider.url


LP 5, AD and password sync

Submitted by zzbroud on Thu, 10/01/2015 - 09:55


We are beginning a test install of LP 5 and want to use AD credentials for authentication if possible. Currently our AD and Luminis usernames are not the same. We are using first.last (3rd Party Id) for Luminis and (userPrincipalName) with AD. Many of our newer users have never used sAMAccountName to login to anything.


1. Is it possible to use a username in the format of for Luminis 5?

maximum password length

Submitted by sammy on Tue, 04/14/2015 - 16:18


We are on luminis 4.2.2 integrated with Banner 8 self service using ldap;

we've gotten some errors lately when students' password length is quite long. and We don't know exactly what this length is so just trying to clarify and let our help desk know. the error we would see is:

requested URL /uhdad/gokcsso.p_call_banner_sserv was not found

External Authentication Service and LP5

Submitted by dalles on Wed, 03/11/2015 - 15:42



We're in the process of upgrading to LP5 and one of the questions that needs answering is how some current user accounts will be able to access without having to authenticate through CAS. Mostly, these are for testing purposes (so that various offices can log in to see what a certain population is seeing - these accounts only exist in Luminis). With LP4 we use External Authentication Service for these special accounts; however, I have not been successful in finding any documentation about this possibility in LP5.

Any information would be most appreciated.

Authentication to Active Directory

Submitted by bergesonm on Fri, 12/05/2014 - 10:39


Hi -

We are wondering if it is possible to point Luminis 5 to authenticate to our Active Directory instead of the delivered LDAP?

If so, what is needed in regards to permissions, such as roles for the active directory?

Any documentation on this?

We are now in the process of preparing to move off of Luminis 4, and this is one option we are currently exploring.
