Troubleshooting

  • If the Search Users tab returns an error then after step was successful
    • It means Auth0 LDAP connector is still configuring things. Please give it a few minutes and try again

    • If it not working after more than 5 minutes then consider restarting the LDAP connector from the Task Manager. Restart the services shown in the below screenshot. Try to search for a user after this.


    • If it still not working after the above step, then restart the Windows Server.
