LDAP Plguin doesn't work well with Active Directory
|Reported by:||Meaulnes||Owned by:|
In implementing GMG in our Active Directory Environment, I discovered that it doesn't work particularly well with AD. I've generated a patch for some changes that I've made. Some of the changes are specific to AD, but some of them should be more generic for any LDAP implementation. I've also attempted to clarify the documentation, since I had to do to quite a bit of code reading to even find what all of the LDAP config options were.
The changes in this patch are tested against my AD environment, and are known to be working -- I'll probably be rolling this out to production this week. I do hope to get an OpenLDAP implementation set up so that I can also test against it, but in reality I am probably quite a ways from it.
I wasn't able to find a style guide, so I hope that my code is up to snuff. It is my first ever patch of this sort, so please be gentle. I'm happy to answer any questions.
