I'm fairly new to ldap. it's up and running.. my question is this

I'm using the admin login info to test it.

So I will create a new user for ldap auth.  What groups is this user supposed to be part of?

I think this may be more a question for either a microsoft OS TA or the eMail TA.

LDAP itself is slightly different, where alternative OS are used for support, or specialized proprietary EM solutions.

For general purpose use, a common web browser (even IE) or even command line can access well enough as anonymous user.

>  it's up and running

Then... why do you need to increase the number of groups used?

A guess, is that for MS you want some group privileges for Exchange

Are you also setting up OE or OWA? Depending on how that is done you might need more privilage.

But the comment of "up and running" sounds like you've done the admin thing and need to next look at popping an ID that is not Admin, just general user, and see if they can use LDAP for their needs.

Thanks. I still think it is kind of cute to type in LDAP: on the web browser instead of HTTP: to help recognize the flexibility of web
