The following bug has been logged on the website: Bug reference: 16399 Logged by: Ciaran Email address: (redacted) PostgreSQL version: 10.12 Operating system: Windows Server 2012 Description: Hello, Follow the documentation here: https://www.postgresql.org/docs/10/auth-methods.html#AUTH-LDAP I'm attempting to enable LDAP authentication on my postgres database. The relevant line for my testing this in my pg_hba.conf file is as follows: host all ciaranh 0.0.0.0/0 ldap ldapurl="ldap://<DC>/OU=IT,DC=CNFLTD,DC=COM?sAMAccountName?one" #ldapbinddn="CN=Postgres Bind, OU=Service Accounts, DC=CNFLTD, DC=COM" ldapbindpasswd="cnfP@ssw0rd" I receive the following error when trying to start the postgres service: 2020-04-28 16:00:02.619 PDT  LOG: authentication method "ldap" requires argument "ldapserver" to be set 2020-04-28 16:00:02.619 PDT  CONTEXT: line 79 of configuration file "C:/Program Files/PostgreSQL/10/data/pg_hba.conf" 2020-04-28 16:00:02.619 PDT  FATAL: could not load pg_hba.conf I do not understand why the ldapserver need be set if it's specified in the ldapurl field, this seems like a bug to me.
