Connecting to LDAP anonymously

Description

WMS is connecting to LDAP anonymously for NetID based account user information. This does not offer WMS access to the complete user population, students especially, at Rutgers that may be using Scholar Deposit. The fix is to apply for LDAP connection credentials and connect using those credentials, which will give WMS access the the wider audience of users.

In preparation for developing a fix on rep-dev my user will need write access to this directory and the files contained therewithin.

/mellon/htdocs/workflow/dwms/ru_local/ru_common/ldap/

Thanks,
Chad

Please test this feature. Testing should include the following:

1) Create a collection using the NetID of a student who is not on the payroll
2) Assign faculty deposit privileges to a student who is not on the payroll
3) In WMS user account add and account using the NetID of a student not on the payroll

The changes that were made to the WMS code are as follows.

1) ./dwms_aa/ru_local/ru_common/ldap/LDAP_RUFD.php
- renamed 8.1 version to LDAP_RUFD.8.1.php
- editing LDAP_RUFD.php and added a service DN and password to the classes configuration array

2) ./dwms/ru_local/ru_common/ldap/LDAP_RUFD.php
- renamed 8.1 version to LDAP_RUFD.8.1.php
- editing LDAP_RUFD.php and added a service DN and password to the classes configuration array

I tested with all three of these scenarios (on test system), and was successful for each one.

I have packaged up the fix. Two files need updating. I packaged those files individually for installation.
