EP LDAP Active Directory Configuration

I have configured our Portal UME LDAP to use Microsoft Active Directory (AD) with the ads_readonly_db. To test, we created a service account user. The test worked and allowed me to see the users in the service account ou via the User Administration, Identity Management. The example of the configuration for this test:

OU=ServiceAccounts,OU=ADMIN,DC=ActiveDirectory

We want to use this to access our employees in AD, but cannot see any of the users in AD when we view under User Administration, Identity Management. We changed the configuration to the CN where the employee IDs are in AD. The example is:

CN=EMPLOYEES,OU=ADMIN,DC=ActiveDirectory

Can anyone offer suggestions to help us get AD working in our portal?

Thanks.

    Hi Wally,

    Let me see if I'm getting you right: You tested the scenario once when the users store was the ServiceAccount OU and once with Employees OU?

    You can configure the ume to look for users at OU=Admin,DC=ActiveDirectory. The search is recursive, so both the users under ServiceAccounts and Employees will be viewable in user management.
