The DC is already running LDAP. Perhaps the cloud archiving system just requires an account?

Any account?
Shaun VermaakTechnical SpecialistCommented:
By default, all accounts can enumerate "public" attributes, so yes. They probably have a list of permission requirements though

I would create a specific account for this with a strong password and read only access.... That way it is easier to keep track of, and it won't change the AD...

how difficult would it be to get LDAPS up and running, i would prefer that over plain old LDAP?
