LDAP setup question
Posted on 2008-11-04
I finally managed to get rid of that bastardized bunch o bits that has been plaguing admins for years, Exchange. But, the users have grown attached to the GAL, and are whining about the notion of maintaining their own address books. So, I enabled LDAP on our 2003 x64 domain controller with active directory.
When I configure a client to look at "users", nothing appears in the address lookups. I created another group in AD called Contacts, and placed a couple of dummy, test users in there. They show when the client is set to look at "contacts".
Is there something keeping LDAP and the clients from reading/seeing/using "users"? With the turnover rate in a non-profit, particularly one as seasonally active as a zoo, it would be great if I didn't have to do double duty creating the user entries twice, so I'd really like to be able to use the "user" group in AD.
Clients are Outlook 2003/2007 and Thunderbird, if it matters.
