Incorrect Identity Store configuration.

Additional Information

The identityStoreSchemaType configuration in the Tableau Server Identity Store configuration templates must be customized to match your specific LDAP configuration. To verify that this is configured correctly and that the user mappings are valid, run:
tsm user-identity-store verify-user-mappings -v <the username passed to tabcmd initialuser>

This should return valid values. If any required entries show as "Not found", then the configuration is incorrect.
