Buyer Account, Welcome mail with password & LDAP related query

Hi All

We are facing an issue with the LDAP configuration while creating Buy side users, please see below

If anyone of you could help, please provide your contact details or a solution to overcome this


We have installed SAP E-Sourcing 5.1 On-premise.

We are currently doing the post installation configuration

- Imported the Out of the Box enterprise Deployment Workbook (We have not modified the contents of the workbook)

- We have configured an SMTP mail host to send and receive all mails from the application


Based on the enterprise Deployment Workbook, the system has created the following Directory configuration settings pointing to different LDAP system


QA SunOne 5.2 u2013 Buyside

QA SunOne 5.2 u2013 Sellside

QA ActiveDirectory 2003 - Buyside

QA ActiveDirectory 2003 u2013 Sellside

QA Oracle 9.0.2 u2013 Buyside

QA Oracle 9.0.2 u2013 Sellside

When we are creating the Buyside users (If we use the Check Box u2013 Create Directory account), we are getting a communication error

If we uncheck it, it creates the account but the system does not generate the welcome mail. We understand that the welcome mail has the system generated password to log-onto the application as the Buyer.

We are also not able to create the local users, as the template isnu2019t available in the downloaded software, we donu2019t know the format thatu2019s expected by the system.

Please let us know, if there is an alternate way to get the password even without using LDAP or Local directories.

Incase LDAP or creation of local directory is the key, then please let us know whatu2019s happening incorrectly in our case.

This has become a show stopper for us going any forward.

Request your help ASAP
