Authenticating using Active Directory 2003


I'm trying to get my intranet site to authenticate itself against an windows 2003 active directory server. I'm using tomcat 5.0.18. Has anyone managed to do this and with what.

I have downloaded the easyldap tags, but get error

 [LDAP: error code 49 - 80090308: LdapErr: DSID-0C09030F, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 525, vece]

when i try to connect to the active direcotry server.

AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e means "bad password",
AcceptSecurityContext error, data 525 means "bad user name" and
AcceptSecurityContext error, data 773 means "password expiring" or similar.

So it looks like you have a "bad user name"

I solved this one by specifiying the correct paths in the active directory structure. Yoiu have to be carefull how you specify your organisational units and domain controllers, i.e OU=SupportStaff, DC=Domainname,DC=ac, DC=uk etc etc
fair enough :-)
