Here is the code the contractor is using


    var $ldap = array(
        'driver'   => 'ldap',
        'host'     => 'mhmdc1',
        //'login'    => 'gemadmin',
//        'login'    => 'cn=gemadmin,dc=mhmnet',                    
        'login' => 'cn=gemadmin,dc=mhmnet,dc=mhm-services,dc=local',
//        'login' => 'cn=username,dc=mhmnet,dc=mhm-services,dc=local',
//        'login' => 'CN=Username,OU=IT,OU=MHM Users,DC=mhmnet,DC=local',
        'password' => 'Gem@dmin',
        //'database' => 'test_database_name'

> 'login' => 'cn=gemadmin,dc=mhmnet,dc=mhm-services,dc=local',

That's the full path to the user, here it suggests the user account has been created in the root of your domain.

If the user was in the Users container that would change to:

'login' => 'cn=gemadmin,cn=users,dc=mhmnet,dc=mhm-services,dc=local',

Or if the user was in an OU you created it would be:

'login' => 'cn=gemadmin,ou=somewhere,ou=anotherou,dc=mhmnet,dc=mhm-services,dc=local',
