Nuxeo login issue with LDAP


I have configured nuxeo 5.6 with LDAP. I have a de-coupled environment i.e nuxeo DB and nuxeo application is running on different machines within same VLAN. Each time when i try to logged in into it, it throws me error of 'Invalid username/password'. Now after this, without changing any entry or attribute of user i.e username and password, I again make a try, then its get successfully logged in.

Each time i have to 2-times click the login button. In logs it says..login failed without giving any extra piece of information.

Many thanks in advance..!!!

Are there any other errors in the Nuxeo logs? Please try to activate DEBUG mode for {{}} to find out more. Also a network trace of the LDAP dialogue could be helpful.


Thanks for your concern and time. I have one issue, How do i turn on the DEBUG mode for ??

I have already setup debug mode true in log4j.xml file. In my nuxeo instance, I have log4j.xml like this..

log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j=""
debug="true" threshold="null">

Do i need to change it somewhere else ??

Many thanks in advance…!!!


In log4j.xml add:

<category name="">
  <priority value="DEBUG" />

This is standard Log4J stuff.


Hi, Thanks for the update…!!!

I have found something in logs, as follows

DEBUG [] Bind failed: (my ldap server hostname):389; socket closed

What exactly is this ??

This piece of ERROR always come when i make the first try, but on second try and afterwards, Nuxeo authentication works properly.

So what next step should i take to deal with this "socket closed" problem ??


Hi Florent,

Any update on this..???


hi, getting same error

Hi, I am newer to Nuxeo. I had successfully implemented SSO with LDAP-CAS-NUXEO, but Nuxeo takes login credentials as UserName & Password. But I want to change it to Email & password. I am not able to find any way to do it. Any help in this will be greatly appreciable.
