    Default Authenticating to Active Directory with CFLDAP

    I have been have some issues gettingto active directory on a win 2003 server
    via the cfldap tag. Here's the code snippet Iam using for testing purposes
    (note, the attributes value is not important at this point...it's there because
    it's required)

    <cfldap action="query"
    name="GetUserInfo"
    start="DC=ds,DC=ad,DC=adp,DC=com"
    scope="subtree"
    attributes="givenname"
    filter="(&(objectclass=user))"
    server="*servername*" port="389"
    username="*my username*"
    password="*my password*">

    When I run this I get an error that focuses onthe attribute field int he CF
    error page saying "Innapropriate Authentication" I know the username and
    passwoerd are good as i can hit the server with ldap.exe and pull information.
    I am at a loss as to what to do. I have tried everything i could think of.
    Any ideas?

    Try pre-pending the domain to the username. Hope that helps. Thanks.

    Did it work? According to what I know - about normal LDAPs, not ActiveDirectory
    - the username must in fact be a distinguished name, i.e something like
    "uid=myusername,dc=ds,dc=ad,dc=adp,dc=com"
    As CFLDAP works like a normal LDAP interface, that might be necessary.

    ldap.exe will work because it expects a username only...
    Quick solution: Try just to do it without identification (username, pwd)-
    searches of public attributes can usually be done anonymously in any
    ldap-server.
