LDAP querying with MXLogic

We're trying to limit the account attached to MXLogic that queries AD.  What are the minimal settings that we can get away with? Our concern is allowing this account too much control with a very sensitive server in our organization.

Thanks.

We're running Windows Server 2003.

If all you need the account to do is Read, then it only needs to be an Authenticated User. If the account needs to update Active Directory in any way, determine precisely what it needs to update, and create a dedicated user account that has been delegated those permissions and nothing more.

Well, the support desk said the profile needed admin rights, but then doubled back and said the account only needed read access and the ability to query LDAP.  

Bottom-line, it didn't sound like these guys really had a grip on how to set it up without reading from a script. I just want to make sure that I have the right privileges assigned without granting TOO much access.

Thanks.
