Debugging problems

All log messages are sent to the standard Zope event log 'event.log'. In order to see more verbose logging output you need to increase the log level in your Zope instance's zope.conf. See the 'eventlog' directive. Setting the 'level' key to 'debug' will maximize log output and may help pinpoint problems during setup and testing.

LDAP Schema considerations when used with the CMF

The CMF (and by extension, Plone) expect that every user has an email address. In order to make everything work correctly your LDAP user records must have a "mail" attribute or similar, and this attribute must be set up in the "LDAP Schema" tab of your LDAPUserFolder. When you add the email schema item make sure you set the "Map to Name" field to "email".

The attributes that show up on the join form and the personalize view are governed by the properties you 'register' using the 'Member Properties' tab in the portal_memberdata tool ZMI view, which in turn is sourced from the 'LDAP Schema' tab in the LDAPUserFolder ZMI view. Attributes you would like to enable for portal members must be set up on the LDAPUserFolder 'LDAP Schema' tab first, and then registered using the 'Member properties' screen in the Member data tool ZMI view.
