Creating real-time lookup to AD

I'm working on a Web-based application where a supervisor needs to supply a subordinate's name via a lookup. Every supervisor has a Notes ID, but not every subordinate has a Notes ID. All subordinates have an Active Directory account. How can I create a real-time lookup to AD? As you can tell, the AD will not be used for authentication. Do I need to use LDAP and Directory Services? If so, how would it be configured?
I would have the AD server listed in your directory assistance database as a source, and then have your application make the LDAP call for that lookup. Specifics on setting it up are dependent on your environment, but once you have DA up and connecting to AD, you should be fine.
