Apache ldap-group authentication

I am trying to get Apache to authenticate against a ldap group. But I am not getting it to work. Pasting in the config in the code window. No errors found in /var/log/apache2/error.log
LoadModule ldap_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_ldap.so
LoadModule authnz_ldap_module /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_authnz_ldap.so

<Directory "/path/to/dir">
        Options ExecCGI
        AllowOverride None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

        AuthName "AdminTools Group Membership is needed"
        AuthType Basic
        AuthBasicProvider ldap
        AuthzLDAPAuthoritative on
        AuthLDAPGroupAttribute memberUid
        AuthLDAPGroupAttributeIsDN off
        AuthLDAPURL "ldap://,DC=company,DC=local?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=*)"
        AuthLDAPBindDN "CN=Apache,OU=Users,OU=Company-Users,DC=company,DC=local"
        AuthLDAPBindPassword "secret"
        Require ldap-group CN=AdminTools,OU=Groups,OU=Company-Users,DC=company,DC=local
        #Require ldap-attribute gidNumber=1001
        #Satisfy any

I changed the loglevel to debug. Thought I had done that already. Results are below. The AD structure and the distinguished names all exist. Connection with the server was tested successfulluy on port 389 with telnet.

As far as I can see, I have set my config up exactly as in:

The only difference is that I commented out the following:
#Require ldap-attribute gidNumber=1001
#Satisfy any

If i uncomment Satisfy any, I get no full access to the web page, and no authorization prompt is made.
As you can see in the config, the AuthLDAPURL is one lever lower then the groups and the users, who are both in each their OU's. I have understood the config as if it will handle everything under the subtree under AuthLDAPURL. Is this correct? No errors there? I guess I do not have to have the groups and the users in the same OU and then point AuthLDAPURL to that OU?

Are you sure your groups contain memberUid as an attribute?

if not, Try
AuthLDAPGroupAttribute member
AuthLDAPGroupAttributeIsDN on
