Could you elaborate a bit, perhaps? If I understand you correctly, you can search for users imported from your external LDAP server in Gluu's web UI, but can't use external credentials to log in anyway?
If you still have access to your Gluu Server's web UI, I would ask you to provide screenshots of your configuration from pages:
- `Configuration -> Manage Authentication` : "Manage LDAP authentication" and "Default authentication method" tabs
- `Configuration -> Cache Refresh ` : all tabs except the very last one
Please make sure all settings are visible on those screenshots.
