Hi Swapna,

What it is saying is that the user you supplied is not being
recognized as a valid user against the domain controller you have
configured for your Active Directory authority connection.

If this is a connection that has been around from before you upgraded,
then I'd suggest the following.  Since the last time you upgraded, a
significant number of changes have taken place to the ActiveDirectory
Connector.  While we tried to maintain backwards compatibility
everywhere, it is certainly possible that something was overlooked.
What I suggest is that you open the authority connection in the UI,
and even if everything looks fine, save it.  This will upgrade the way
the connection is saved, and potentially upgrade it.

If this is a NEW connection, and you were simply trying to recreate an
older one from memory, I would look at the parameters very carefully.
Specifically, your choice of what AD attribute is used to match the
user could change what name you use for each user.  If you have access
to the domain controller you will want to verify you've made the right
selection; the default attribute is not the same as before, and
although upgrade should have preserved existing behavior, you will not
get the benefit of that if you created a new connection from scratch.

If you send us more information about how you did the upgrade, we
might be of more help.
