HI All,

We are starting to plan a migration of WAS 7.0.0.X (both 5 and 9) to a new environment that contains of  Microsoft  Acitive Directory 2008r2 in native mode. While I know the system req's for 7 state that only 2003 is support, just wondering if anyone has attempted and got it working, or knows why LDAP authenication using 2008r2 ad doesn't work?

Cheers
JL

IBM states "Any LDAP directory server that supports the LDAP V3 specification rfc 2251 is supported unless specific LDAP is noted on unsupported page."

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27012494

So, since Microsoft claims AD follows ldap v3 standards, it should work, and technically, should be supported.
