I'm trying to use the cache refresh to sync an external LDAP from another server but it's not working, I made the connections test and they were successful but it still not working. To be honest, I have a lot of doubts about how LDAP works, I don't know if have to create a full DIT or if I can import it from the Gluu's LDAP, if the case is the second, do you have an example of a DIT I can use as a guide? I'm using an OpenLDAP with the domain ud.example.org.

>> I'm using an OpenLDAP with the domain ud.example.org. Say.. your user is in one tree named 'ou=people,o=example,o=org' in that OpenLDAP. you need to import that specific tree, this will be used as 'baseDN' in Gluu Server. And you need to make sure that you have some user who can 'read' that tree. That user's username will be 'bindDN' ( full DN of that user ) and password will be 'bindDN password'.

I did it already even with two Gluu instances and it still not working. I attach some pictures of what I've have done: https://mega.nz/#F!HU4jVYRb!ZTUoXDkO7Odz0e-ndqLGuw Does the username that can read that tree have to be "bindDN" and the password have to be "bindDN password"?? Because I tryied with that, and it didn't work anyway. Now I set the username as "admin" and with a specific and safer password, for security resaons.
