Or perhaps some >other path/process I'm overlooking short of using the Directory Manager >account? sipxecs internally uses LDAP bind authentication, it does not need access to userPassword. See, for example, the actual code that does it via Spring framework's LDAP Bind Authentication provider: https://github.com/SIPfoundry/sipxecs/blob/master/sipXconfig/neoconf/src/org/sipfoundry/sipxconfig/security/ConfigurableLdapAuthenticationProvider.java#L167 I wonder what is your configuration compared to what is listed in https://sipfoundry.atlassian.net/wiki/display/sipXecs/LDAP+Integration -- you can send me screenshots off-list. -- / Alexander Bokovoy -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project
