Rails Devise LDAP Error: NoMethodError in Devise::SessionsController#create

My team has setup my ruby on rails app to work with devise ldap. Whenever a user logs in for the first time, it creates a new entry in the Users model and works completely fine. But whenever a user that already exist in the Users database tries to login it gives the following error:

NoMethodError in Devise::SessionsController#create

undefined method `to' for nil:NilClass

From looking at the server console, it seems like it is failing on this SQL statement:

SELECT `users`.* FROM `users` WHERE `users`.`username` = 'jDoe' LIMIT 1

I think the server is getting no results from that query.

But whenever I run that same sql statement in the ruby console, it gives the correct result (the record of the user attempting to login)

Here are some of my devise configs. I am new to devise and ruby (and I also didn't install the devise) so let me know if you need other config files to debug this problem.


Devise.setup do |config|

  config.ldap_create_user = true
  config.ldap_update_password = false

  config.mailer_sender = "****"

  require 'devise/orm/active_record'

  config.authentication_keys = [ :username ]

  config.case_insensitive_keys = [ :email ]

  config.strip_whitespace_keys = [ :email ]

  config.skip_session_storage = [:http_auth]

  config.stretches = Rails.env.test? ? 1 : 10

  config.reconfirmable = true

  config.password_length = 8..128

  config.sign_out_via = :delete

  devise :ldap_authenticatable, :rememberable, :trackable

My problem happened because I had 2 tables that inherited from User (Client, and Runner) and they both tried to authenticate with the same ldap. When I took out the single table inheritance everything worked fine.
