Please see the MS KB Article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299410

Now, you can easily get into a bit of trouble with permissions and having access. So, make sure your SQl Server Service account (ie the account used to start the service) does have the appropriate permissions and not just "local"

Have a look at the last page of : http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic259587-8-3.aspx

Also, I used to use LDAP Browser to help with queries and find out schema etc - since upgraded to the paid for administrator : http://www.ldapbrowser.com/download.htm You might find it useful to resolve connections etc.
