Re: baffled by active directory

Please note that this list is for discussing issues specific
to OpenLDAP Software.  Questions about other software, such
as Active Directory, should be taken elsewhere.  Microsoft
runs a number of different forums related to Active Directory.
See their website(s) for details.
