LDAP user_import skipping users...But which ones???

My LDAP import runs fine for most users but skips 17 that it says are missing required fields. How do I find which users it is skipping? The log only shows the number of users, not their names.

What version of the SMA?

Listed below are the 3 required fields that users must have mapped with the typical LDAP import mapping.
It's important to stay with the same mapped fields on future imports to avoid duplicate entries as these will be used to detect if it's an addition or modification.

Ldap Uid: (required). == objectguid
Login: (required) ==  samaccountname
Primary Email: (required) mail

You could use the LDAP Browser in the UI to search for valid users missing these fields.
The invalid users listed could be just service accounts. If that is the case the LDAP query can be changed to filter out them when importing.

  • Thanks. They were indeed service accounts with no mail attribute set. I was able to exclude them by setting the descriptions to "Service Accounts" and filtering those out. - kawhite_mb 1 year ago
