WPMU and LDAP (Active Directory) does not allow AD users to log in (2 posts)

    First, let me say that so far everything I've seen with both Wordpress, and Wordpress-mu looks really awesome. I'm trying to set up a blog server for my organization, and for the most part set-up has been a snap. The guys at Wordpress-mu have actually made it easier to set up than Wordpress, which was pretty simple.

    The problem I am having is that even though I have installed the LDAP plugin here and followed its instructions, so far I have not been able to get it functioning. When I try to login with one of my active directory accounts It just takes me back to the login screen. I set up a functioning support ticket server (OneorZero) which also authenticates through ldap and tried both similar and unique answers to the variables still with no luck. Google, and forum searches didn't help me come up with an answer so now I will ask the community for help. Thank you in advance.

    Relevant information is as follows:

    On the active directory side, I had to create a user in the root of the domain (*shudder*) with browse and read permissions since it wasn't allowing cross-OU browsing from members of differentOU's on the same level. This will probably be resolved when we move all users into their own OU with sub-OU's for the different types of users. I then had to create a pointer in the AD DNS that pointed * to the correct IP and delegate the authority to that domain to myblogserver. On the Debian side I had to install DNS and create a record with the appropriate pointers in it to * Thanks to those of you that had tips on this particular problem.
