Hi I'm not sure but I think that the documentation may need an update. I ran into an issue where I needed to revert my default authentication method after locking my self out and the FAQ page seemed to reference a different LDAP structure that what I had. Hopefully I'm not off base but I figured I post this here incase it could help someone. The Gluu Server 4.0 Docs “FAQ & Troubleshooting” page under the “Revert an authentication method” section is referencing a different LDAP location that what I have in my out of the box 4.0 install. I’m not sure if this was the structure used in previous version or if I just have a different set up but the location of the *oxAuthenticationMode* and *oxTrustAuthenticationMode* attributes for me was directly under ‘*ou=configuration,o=gluu*’ and the ‘*ou=appliances,o=gluu*’ didn’t exist in my LDAP. I managed to lock my self out by changing the default authentication method for ‘oxTrust acr’ and I reverted it back with the below ldif file: ``` dn: ou=configuration,o=gluu changetype: modify replace: oxTrustAuthenticationMode oxTrustAuthenticationMode: simple_password_auth ``` Dave
