For some users, password List authentication fails and a new password list is sent on every login by MobileID. For some users, the authentication is successful, but a new password list is sent on every login.

What can be wrong?

A situation, whre Password List authentication fails and/or a new password list is sent on every login happens most likely, because the MobileID LDAP account has no write permissions on the wloginUserData (or its alias) attribute.

To verify this:

  1. Choose View - System logs - Warn
  2. Look for a line with string “ldap_modify”.
  3. If the line contains an error “Insufficient Access” the reason is that the MobileID LDAP account has no permissions to the write on the displayed user DN.

Resolution:

Use your LDAP tools (i.e. Active Directory Users and Computers MMC) to add the required permissions.

If the permissions work against some other user DNs, check that you have correctly replicated the permissions on all the OUs that should be eligible of using password list authentication.
