ASA 8.2.5 LDAP authentication by memberof doesn't always work

I've configured LDAP authentication to allow access if  members are a member of the "VPN_Users" Group.  This configuration is  working, but only for some users.  For other users it isn't.  The output  of the 'debug ldap 255' shows an output of memberOf for the users that  it's working for, but shows nothing for users it's not working for.   I've not been able to figure out any connection or differences that are  the same between those users that work and those that don't.  Any idea on what might be causing this problem?  Both working and non-working users will authenticate, its just some of them don't pull the memberof data in the ldap query.

As far as your configuration is concerned it looks perfectly fine. As you mentioned that the difference between the working and non working debugs is that in the non working debugs we do not see memberof attribute being retrieved.

the main reason could be that the username "svc-cisco@localdomain.com" with which you are performing the LDAP bind does not have sufficient privileges to retreive all the attributes from all the users in the AD. This looks like permission issue at the AD user level.

One thing you can try on the AD is to "Delegate Control" to this user (svc-cisco@localdomain.com) to "Read all properties" for all users and not just a subset of users. Please get in touch with AD Admin before making such a change on the AD.

Here is an external link just to give an idea about delegation of control to "Read all properties"

I had an identical issue as OP.  I was able to give 'ldap-login-dn' user Account Operator privielges and then succeeded in solving the issue.  I am rating your post 5 star since it would have fixed me.
