I have a Barracuda 300 Firewall and I need some help on setting up the Ldap setting for Windows 2003 AD/Exchange 2003.  Under the Domain tab -> Edit Ldap.  

One question what should I put for Bind DN:  I assume this is any valid users in AD or does it need to be a special user?  

Second question is LDAP UID?  The help indicates this should be the SAMaccountName.  Where do I located that name?

Hello,
   You should be able to use any account for bind dn.  We created an account called "lookup" and in our bind dn box we use "lookup@<domain.name>", substituting your real domain name for <domain.name>.  The bind password is the password for this account.  In LDAP UID we just have "uid".   LDAP primary email attribute is set to "email".

What do you use for the Valid email address?  Also everything seems to be working now but I'm getting the following warning:
Warning: Uniquely identifying attribute 'uid' not found

In "Valid Email" I just have a valid email address for one of our users.  When I press "test LDAP" I actually get the warning about uid not being valid also, but the ldap lookup works.  I incorrectly stated above that our  LDAP primary email attribute was "email", it is actually not, it is "mail".  

Below are the results I get when I press test ldap:

Found address validaddress@mydomaindomain.com in 0.67 seconds.
Warning: Uniquely identifying attribute 'uid' not found. Primary e-mail alias attribute 'mail' has value of validaddress@mydomain.com.

lwrogers,
You want to use "SAMaccountName" as the LDAP UID.  this distinguishes that each user is identified by their unique username.  UID is not one of the LDAP fields within AD and thats why the warning comes up.
