First time setup of ContinuaCI - LDAP/AD Issues

Getting ContinuaCI set up for the first time.

Apparently successful install, but when I browse localhost/ContinuaCI I get a log that ends with many repetitions of this error:

LDAP Synchroniser: Error occurred while connecting to active directory. Details: Error connecting to Active Directory. The LDAP administrators group is empty in the service configuration.

When I went through the installer, I’m sure I supplied a valid AD group, but apparently something isn’t right. Where can I see/change this configuration information?

Hi Carl,

The authentication mode settings are in the server configuration file. By default, this is located at: C:\Program Files\VSoft Technologies\ContinuaCI\Server\Continua.Server.Service.exe.config

Look for the authentication node under continua-configuration. e.g.

<authentication mode="Mixed" fqdn="" administratorsGroup="Continua Administrators" />

See authentication mode configuration for further details.

Note that you can also change the settings by rerunning the installer and selecting I want to update my existing settings on the Upgrade step.
