What if Exchange and Active Directory aren't on the same box?
Authored by: ScottTFrazer on Apr 30, '08 01:37:49PM

Try putting the full name of your domain controller / active directory server where the hint suggested an exchange server. That worked for me.

I am having the same issue, but how do you determine that info? I know the exchange server from my outlook settings, but how can I possibly find the AD info without IT help?

Try this, where "xyz" is the domain name of your company on your internal network.
(ie, if your mail server was mail.xyz.com)

dig -t SRV _ldap._tcp.xyz.com

... what should get returned is something like this:

0 100 389 domain-server.xyz.com.

And that - domain-server.xyz.com - is your AD server. That's what you need to use with ldapsearch.
