How do I set up Directory Assistance to use Active Directory as the third-party LDAP directory? My users need the ability to authenticate on Web Domino sites using their logon credentials from Active Directory.
When I try to set up Directory Assistance, it appears to be accessing the AD, but I can't log anyone onto the Domino Web pages.
I would appreciate your providing article links or advice applicable to R6.
Unfortunately, AD does not allow the password to be passed for credential usage outside the AD infrastructure. The only way you do this is via the AD Sync tool, installed with the Domino admin client. It must reside on a machine that has the AD MMC snap-in. From this interface, you can synchronize the AD and Domino directories (both ways) for your needs.
I advise you to get the AD entries into a secondary directory that's used only by Directory Assistance for credentials.
