Populating Profiles with photos from LDAP

    Typical names for the LDAP binary attribute are photo;binary, jpegPhoto;binary, and image;binary, but you must use the same name that your LDAP uses. For example:


  3. Run the load_photos_from_ldap assembly line command.

    Note: You must run this command for each LDAP server and each LDAP branch that contains photos.
