• Domino Login vs Directory assistance

    By Tom C Tveita 6 years ago

    I've got a DEV server with Directroy Assistance configured.

    Logging in with a user registered within the local directory on the DEV server works perfectly fine. However, logging in as a user registered on a differennt Domino domain only works as far as the login page, and then it fails.

    dominoLogincom.ibm.jscript.InterpretException: Script interpreter error, line=474, col=58: 'db.getView()' is nullno error

    Seems that Intrapages only supports users registered on a physical user database on the server where it is actually installed on.

    This database being the servers names.nsf, or the directory specified in the config.

    • is the DD to look in on the same server as intrapages?

      Hi

      Let me try to explain how the login works

       

      When accessing intrapages a check is made to see if you are already logged in to Domino. This check is made using @username. 

      If you are already loggedin we will try to find the user in Domino Directory, by default using names.nsf or if you have specified another directory in settings it will look for the user in that directory

       

      I am not sure what you mean that the registered user is in another domain? did you specify another directory in setting? 

      when I look at the error you get it looks like you have specified another Domino directory in settings but it is not found or the server has no access to it. could that be the case?  the DD you specify must be on the same server as intrapages.

       

      Please give me some more information about your configuration so I can understand if this is a bug in the code, if it is not supported or if maybe it is misconfigured

       

      I have installed Intrapages at several customers using directory assistance and it is working.  Actually . Intrapages do not care about Directory assistance. it simply check if the user is logged in and finds the user in the directory you specify.

       

      If you still have problem, please email me at thomas.adrian (@) consili.se

      • DD option for across multiple servers?

        By Tom C Tveita 6 years ago

        Thomas,

        You're right, the intrapages just checks to see if you're logged on to the server. And the server accepts login even though the user is registered in a domain on a directory that is on a physically different server. But this is where it fails. Intrapages can't find the user, as he/she is not in the local names.nsf on the Intrapages server.

        The DD option is empty in the intrapages configuration.

        Directory assitance is pointing to a directroy on a completely diffrent server.

        In short, the Intrapages server only has it's own little directory, with the directory assitance pointing towards a directory on a physically different server.

        Looking at the code in Domino Designer, I see no refrences to Intrapages being told to look for a directory on any other server than it's own.

        Which is fine, It just tells me that I need to create a replica of the directory of my other domino domain on the DEV server, or just create test users in the DEV domain and learn to live with it.

         

        • ok

          Hi Tom.

          yes, the directory must be on the same server, I never saw the need for being able to specify another server as it should be easy to just create a replica. if this is a show stopper for you let me know. maybe we can work something out.

          • No problem.

            You may want to take this as a suggestion for improvement, and leave it at that.

            It no show stopper, just one of those "Ahhh, I didn't think of that" moments.
