More Specific LDAP Result Codes:#
NOTE LDAP Error Codes vs LDAP Result Codes#LDAP is a request-response protocol and each request, is followed by a response. A success result code (0) implies all is well.
Anyhow, here you can find many LDAP Result Codes and what they imply.IANA Registry resultCode values as described in RFC 4520
We list them here as they were on 2016-08-05:
|0x00||0||LDAP_SUCCESS||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||This is used to indicate that the associated operation completed successfully.|
|0x01||1||LDAP_OPERATIONS_ERROR||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||This is used to indicate that the associated request was out of sequence with another operation in progress (e.g., a non-bind request in the middle of a multi-stage SASL bind).It does not indicate that the client has sent an erroneous message.|
eDirectory: In NDS 8.3x through NDS 7.xx, this was the default error for NDS errors that did not map to an LDAP error code. To conform to the new LDAP drafts, NDS 8.5 uses 80 (0x50) for such errors.
|0x02||2||LDAP_PROTOCOL_ERROR||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||This is used to indicate that the client (DUA) sent data to the server that did not comprise a valid LDAP request.|
|0x03||3||LDAP_TIMELIMIT_EXCEEDED||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||This is used to indicate that processing on the associated request Timeout limit specified by either the client request or the server administration limits has been exceeded and has been terminated because it took too long to complete. For a SearchRequest operation, it is possible that some of the matching entries had been returned when the Timeout limit was reached.|
|0x04||4||LDAP_SIZELIMIT_EXCEEDED||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||This is used to indicate that there were more entries matching the criteria contained in a SearchRequest operation than were allowed to be returned by the size limit configuration. Incomplete results may be returned.|
|0x05||5||LDAP_COMPARE_FALSE||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Does not indicate an error condition. This is used to indicate that a Compare Request operation completed successfully, but the provided attribute value assertion did not match the target entry.|
|0x06||6||LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Does not indicate an error condition. This is used to indicate that a Compare Request operation completed successfully, and the provided attribute value assertion matched the target entry.|
|0x07||7||LDAP_AUTH_METHOD_NOT_SUPPORTED||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||This is used to indicate that the Directory Server does not support the requested Authentication Method.|
|0x08||8||LDAP_STRONG_AUTH_REQUIRED||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates one of the following:|
* In Bind Requests, the LDAP server accepts only strong authentication.
* In a client request, the client requested an operation such as Delete Request that requires strong authentication.
* In an Unsolicited Notification of disconnection, the LDAP server discovers the security protecting the communication between the client and server has unexpectedly failed or been compromised.
|0x0A||10||LDAP_REFERRAL||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Does not indicate an error condition. In LDAPv3, indicates that the server does not hold the target entry of the request, but that the servers in the LDAP Referral field may.|
|0x0C||12||LDAP_UNAVAILABLE_CRITICAL_EXTENSION||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the LDAP server was unable to satisfy a request because one or more critical extensions were not available. Either the server does not support the control or the control is not appropriate for the operation type.|
|0x0D||13||LDAP_CONFIDENTIALITY_REQUIRED||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the session is not protected by a protocol such as Transport Layer Security (TLS), which provides session confidentiality and the request will not be handled without confidentiality enabled.|
|0x0E||14||LDAP_SASL_BIND_IN_PROGRESS||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Does not indicate an error condition, but indicates that the server is ready for the next step in the process. The client must send the server the same SASL Mechanism to continue the process.|

|0x11||17||LDAP_UNDEFINED_TYPE||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the attribute specified in the modify or add operation does not exist in the LDAP server's schema.|
|0x12||18||LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_MATCHING||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the matching rule specified in the search filter does not match a rule defined for the attribute's syntax.|
|0x13||19||LDAP_CONSTRAINT_VIOLATION||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the attribute value specified in a Add Request, Modify Request or ModifyDNRequest operation violates constraints placed on the attribute. The constraint can be one of size or content (string only, no binary).|
|0x14||20||LDAP_TYPE_OR_VALUE_EXISTS||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the attribute value specified in a Add Request or Modify Request operation already exists as a value for that attribute.|
|0x15||21||LDAP_INVALID_SYNTAX||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the attribute value specified in an Add Request, Compare Request, or Modify Request operation is an unrecognized or invalid syntax for the attribute.|
|0x20||32||LDAP_NO_SUCH_OBJECT||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates the target object cannot be found. This code is NOT returned on following operations:|
* SearchRequest operations that find the BaseDN but cannot find any LDAP entries that match the search filter.
* Bind Request operations.

|0x22||34||LDAP_INVALID_DN_SYNTAX||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the syntax of the DN is incorrect. (If the DN syntax is correct, but the LDAP server's structure rules do not permit the operation, the server returns LDAP_UNWILLING_TO_PERFORM.)|
|0x23||35||LDAP_IS_LEAF(Some Server RESERVED)||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the specified operation cannot be performed on a leaf entry. (This code is not currently in the LDAP specifications, but is reserved for this constant.)|
|0x24||36||LDAP_ALIAS_DEREF_PROBLEM||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that during a SearchRequest operation, either the client does not have access rights to read the aliased object's name or dereferencing is not allowed.|
|0x30||48||LDAP_INAPPROPRIATE_AUTH||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that during a Bind Request operation, the client is attempting to use an authentication Method that the client cannot use correctly. For example, either of the following cause this error:|
* The client returns simple credentials when strong credentials are required.
* The client returns a DN and a password for a simple bind when the entry does not have a password defined.
|0x31||49||LDAP_INVALID_CREDENTIALS||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that during a Bind Request operation one of the following occurred:|

|0x33||51||LDAP_BUSY||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the LDAP server is too busy to process the client request at this time but if the client waits and resubmits the request, the server may be able to process it then.|
|0x34||52||LDAP_UNAVAILABLE||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the LDAP server cannot process the client's bind request, usually because it is shutting down.|
|0x35||53||LDAP_UNWILLING_TO_PERFORM||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the LDAP server cannot process the request because of server-defined restrictions. This error is returned for the following reasons:|
* The Add Request violates the server's structure rules.
* The Modify Request specifies attributes that users cannot modify.
* Password restrictions prevent the action.
* Connection restrictions prevent the action.
|0x36||54||LDAP_LOOP_DETECT||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the client discovered an alias or LDAP Referral loop, and is thus unable to complete this request.|
|0x40||64||LDAP_NAMING_VIOLATION||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the Add Request or Modify DN Request operation violates the schema's structure rules. For example:|
* The request places the entry subordinate to an alias.
* The request places the entry subordinate to a container that is forbidden by the containment rules.
* The RDN for the entry uses a forbidden attribute type.
|0x41||65||LDAP_OBJECT_CLASS_VIOLATION||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the Add Request, Modify Request, or modify DN operation violates the object class rules for the entry. For example, the following types of request return this error:|
* The add or modify operation tries to add an entry without a value for a required attribute.
* The add or modify operation tries to add an entry with a value for an attribute which the class definition does not contain.
* The modify operation tries to remove a required attribute without removing the auxiliary class that defines the attribute as required.
|0x42||66||LDAP_NOT_ALLOWED_ON_NONLEAF||IESG||RFC 4511||DSA||Indicates that the requested operation is permitted only on leaf entries. For example, the following types of requests return this error:|
