Dear Experts,

Does anyone know how I can set up an LDAP  server on Windows 2003 Server with Active Directory.  I have 2 Windows 2003 Domain Controllers, one of which is running Exchange 2003 Server.  I need to enable LDAP for couple MAC users so that they can fully be able to see all the groups, also we have server that we would like to use Active Directory authentication which requires LDAP.  Thanks
