Hi @shadma
Debugging LDAP is difficult, so try capturing network traffic and compare clients that work with Metabase.
LDAP Debugging
But upgrade to latest release. There has been many fixes to LDAP since last year:

Hi @flamber ,
I am new to ldap as well so Could you help me understand how do i capture network traffic and compare clients that work with Metabase?
Till then i will try to test it with latest metabase version.

@shadma LDAP is complicated. Try searching the forum or the internet.
How to debug LDAP is not specific to Metabase.

Ok sure!
thanks for the help!
