Fun and Games with the New Site Wizard portlet
Using the IBM New Site Wizard portlet, I was seeing: -
An error occurred creating the new portal site:
An error occurred while trying to create users or groups within the user repository because of insufficient access permissions. This site template requires write access to the user repository.
This only started occurring AFTER I'd configured my portal server ( WebSphere Portal Express 184.108.40.206 ) to authenticate against my Domino LDAP ( Lotus Domino 8.5 ), which kinda indicated where things might have gone wrong.
When I checked the portal's SystemOut.log, I saw: -
com.ibm.websphere.wim.exception.WIMSystemException: CWWIM4520E The 'javax.naming.NoPermissionException: [LDAP: error code 50 - Insufficient Access Rights]; remaining name 'cn=MySite01Admins'; resolved object com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtx@3a063a06' naming exception occurred during processing.
These two sets of messages indicated that the portal is not able to create new users/groups within the Domino Directory, which makes sense given that I have not enabled LDAP write-access ( "Allow LDAP users write access" = "Yes" ).
I'll dig around a little further, but this does make sense ... of a sort
