Heat: A Distinguished Name

A client wants to know: We are setting up the Heat Link to LDAP and want to know where we can find the UserDN?

Linking to Active Directory requires a DN (Distinguished Name). To locate the UserDN to setup the Heat Link to LDAP, you would do the following:

* Launch Active Directory Users and Computers, Select Action > Find

* After finding the LDAP ID, select View > Choose Columns

* From the Choose Columns window select X500 Distinguished Name, click Add. The X500 Distinguished Name will appear in the Find window.

* The X500 Distinguished Name is used in the UserDn field because Active Directory does not allow the use of Anonymous bind.
