I'm in the process of setting up a test enviornment for OCS 2007. I'm on the Delegate Setup Task option and its prompting me for the DN name. I keyed in sever things by the format supplied in the example below based on the organization,FQDN,OU,etc. None of these work.

In the OU field, do you know if there any restrictions on spaces. For (ie) I created a OU called "Live Communication". Where there would be a space between the Live & Comm..... In the case of the DC how would it be handle if it were a company such as

test.net.us.worldwide
