user authentication and distinguished name problems

Hello,
Sorry if I can not use the right terms as I know nothing about lotus, I'm the ad admin.
but We're using lotus family as our form system (version 6) . Every user are defined with their distinguished names. We're creating the dn's from our enterprise db (not AD) Now we have different ou's for different sites. So not every user is on the same ou. If a user changes site if the dn in the lotus (created from enterprise db) is not match user's AD dn, user may have problems entering forms. So is there any way to change the logon mechanisms for the forms. It would be better to use the userids instead of dns
Thank you

You know nothing about Lotus, I know nothing about AD...

Can you give an example of one of the problems you met? What errors do you get, what messages?

Btw, I assume you know there is a single sign-on mechanism available in Notes?

thanks for the answer but suddenly I tought that we could set users dn from AD and not from our enterprise db.
So we're working on it.
The problem in short was that,
is there a way to use something other than DN for the lotus AD SSO.

Notes logins *always* use the Domino Directory, there is no way to bypass that.
