    i've been around this topic for about 2 weeks now, and can not get the active directory syncing up with wordpressMu for user creation / authentication.

    i'm just trying to set up a base wordpressMu site with blogs below it for each department at work. that's all. i just can't seem to get the active directory plugin(s) to work at all..

    any help ?

    thx

    Are you using the WPMU Ldap plugin (http://wpmuldap.frozenpc.net)? If so, are you seeing the configuration screens? The important thing to remember is that the full dn is needed for the configuration options. For example, if you have a group OU called users, you would need to enter ou=users,dc=example,dc=com (or whatever the hierarchy of your AD setup is)_

    I'm using the WPMU Ldap plugin from http://wpmuldap.frozenpc.net. I've gotten the plugin to work successfully. However, the problem that I have is that I can't get it to work for two different domains in the search DN.

    For instance, in the search DN, I have:
    dc=SchoolLS,dc=School,dc=org

    This works for users in that domain. Now, if I remove that in the search DN field and put:
    dc=SchoolMS,dc=School,dc=org

    It works for users in that domain but not for users in the SchoolLS domain. Is there anyway I can get both to work? I've tried separating the two with semicolons, spaces, colons but it didn't work. For instance,

    dc=SchoolLS,dc=School,dc=org;dc=SchoolMS,dc=School,dc=org
    dc=SchoolLS,dc=School,dc=org:dc=SchoolMS,dc=School,dc=org

    Any help would be appreciated!

    We have a similar "multi" issue like nbut asked about, but in our case with OUs. I'd like to either specify multiple OUs OR be able to specify a filter like "(!cn=students)".

    I might have to fall back to using the WPSI "Active Directory Authentication" site-wide and configuring it a bunch of times. This would probably work where I need a pre-defined list of blogs, but not in a auto-blog creation configuration.

    Better ideas or suggestions welcome.
