Setting up Active Directory as a LDAP to User Storage on Portal 6.0



Im trying to set up an Active Directory in the portal.

Under System Configuration -> Um Configuration -> LDAP Server I have filled in the servername, Port, User and Password.. Now im trying to browse for the User Path, but then i get the Exception: Exception while browsing the directory server. Check the provided credentials. [servername:513]

I am sure the servername is correct, and username and password, cause im able to make a remote desktop to the server. I am not sure about the port. In the sevices file on the AD, I can see that the login port is 513. Is this the port I should use?

Or should i set the Data Source first in the portal to Read-Only Microsoft ADS (Flat Hierarchy) + Database (using the dataSourceConfiguration_ads_readonly_db.xml as the configuration file)?

If i do so, and restart the server, the cluster doesnt come up.

Got any suggestion of what could be wrong?
