[CalendarServer-users] Configure ldap with Caldav

Thank you for the response.

My apologies for asking questions on LDAP.

* So, I assume Calendar Server will use LDAP bind command to authenticate
user against LDAP.

My question is which LDAP password will it use to authenticate the user
supplied password received at 8008/8443?

Where is the LDAP password located that LDAP bind command will use to
login/authenticate incoming user.

Best Regards,
Gaurav Jain
