The issue you are facing:


After changing my Admin Password in my AD the nextcloud server doesn’t want to keep the connection to Ldap server

Configuration appears ok, even the tests are fine but I keep getting the fatal error that ldap server is not responding after a few minutes and the I get the same fatal error each 2 minutes

The user count works perfectly, the groups as well

What I forgot to mention that all of our organization has changed passwords

I tried creating a test user in AD just to test login credentials and nextcloud doesn’t see it so I’m guessing it has acces to some kind of data base but not the latest.

Please could anyone know what makes this behaviour?

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? N:
