Thank you for clearing that up.

I will take a look at that document. I have made a connection to the Active Directory, but
am not able to authenticate users yet, probably since I don't know details about how user
or members and their corresponding role information is store in our Directory Server. I will
need to contact the tech guys for that. In Microsoft Active Directory terms, where is this
information stored? and what is called? so I can ask the right questions.

LDAP, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is a protocol that other
programs use to look up contact information from a server, such as Microsoft
Active Directory.  It is a service provided by a server, not a server.  An
LDAP server is a server that provides LDAP services...  The Microsft AD
service is LDAP-compatible.

Hello all,

I am trying to setup tomcat 5 to authenticate against Microsoft Directory
Server through LDAP. I have found a very detailed document for tomcat 5 and
JNDI realm. One question before I go any further: Is LDAP server a server
that needs to be started separately from directory server? If so, where can
I get that?
