Applicable Version(s)



On of the reason for LDAP error code 80 could be because the task fails because there is a character restriction on the AD samaccountname. The restriction is of 20 characters. The system username of this user is greater than 20 characters therefore we are receiving LDAP error code 80 while provisioning. This is a restriction the customer has set on Target AD.

To provision, the task, either the customer will have to increase the character restriction of 20 characters for Saviynt this task or the samaccountname of the users should be less than 20 characters to avoid such a failure.

Hi @sudeshjaiswal,

We received an error while creating new AD Account as below.

[LDAP: error code 80 - 00000523: SysErr: DSID-031A1242, problem 22 (Invalid argument), data 0 ]

The user's system username has the below format:


The special character at the end '.' causing this Invalid argument error?

Hello @KarthikaMoorti,

The special character is not allowed in samaccountname in AD.
