In principle, tracing a given login should be conducted in the following order:

i. Check for inbound connectivity issues – to validate that the login has arrived to the MobileID server.

ii. Check for LDAP connectivity issues – to validate that the user account has been correctly queried from a remote LDAP, such as AD.

iii. Check for SMS connectivity issues – to validate that a SMS messaging was deemed for delivery, if any were required.

iv. Reject/challenge/accept

To review the system log from console:

a. Login to the machine using a SSH client terminal.

b. Issue command cd /opt/tectia/midd/logs/ to go to the MobileID system log files directory.

c. Open midd.log

d. Use for example some of the following criteria to find lines of interest:

  • Lines with time and date matching to the occurrence of the suspected error.
  • Lines containing “[ error ]”, “[ alert ]”, “[ emerg ]”, “[ warn ]”
  • Lines containing “failed”, “invalid”, “unable”
