If the connection is done to the LDAP directory server anonymously (that is, without supplying credentials), the LDAP directory server must allow anonymous access to the attributes used by Lotus® Quickr™. You can use the Lotus Domino® ldapsearch tool to test the server access to LDAP attributes.
To test access to attributes, from the program directory on the Lotus Quickr server, enter a command such as the following one:
ldapsearch -h ldap.acme.com cn=arch*
In this example, ldap.acme.com is the LDAP directory server. The command returns the list of accessible users with common names that begin with the string "arch". If your LDAP directory server is configured to allow access only with specific credentials, you can use the same search, supplying the credentials on the command line:
ldapsearch -h ldap.acme.com -D [username] -w [password] cn=arch*
Using the ldapsearch tool is one of the first steps to take when troubleshooting LDAP directory problems. If you cannot do lookups using ldapsearch there is an underlying network or directory server problem. For more information on ldapsearch, see Domino Administrator Help.

Access to the Domino Directory through LDAP
If you use the Domino Directory as your LDAP directory, fields in the Domino Directory are mapped to LDAP attributes. To view the mapping, open the Domino LDAP Schema database (schema.nsf) on the server. Lotus Quickr and ldapsearch use the attribute names rather than field names. For example, the field OfficePhoneNumber in the Domino Person document is mapped to the LDAP attribute telephonenumber. Telephonenumber is the name used in ldapsearch and in Lotus Quickr.
If Domino is your LDAP directory and Lotus Quickr connects to it anonymously, you can edit the Domain Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory to update the list of attributes allowed for anonymous access. For more information on setting access to a Domino LDAP directory, see Domino Administrator Help.
