Have a look at http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?LdapSummary. I
just recently got my RT authenticating against an Active Directory server
(Bill-of-Borg’s modified LDAP).
I used the Mosemann package with the RT_SiteConfig.pm settings modified a
bit with the settings given in the Mehl documentation (to account for the
different field names between LDAP and AD).
For more instant feedback, check out the IRC site at irc.perl.org/#rt. The
folks hanging out there are terrific.
Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

[rt-users] LDAP Authentication
I guess this message is really for the RT developers. Will RT ever work
with LDAP “out of the box”? Meaning, will it look up user info from
LDAP and authenticate to LDAP.
After spending a couple of weeks so far unsuccessfully trying to get RT
to authenticate and create users from LDAP, I’ve got to think that this
is something RT should just do. Cause frankly, this is a whole lot of
work, and like I mentioned, I haven’t been able to get it to work (yet).
(Maybe it’s just me though.) It also seems that this would benefit
quite a lot of RT users.
Anyway, RT is wonderful, just wish it worked with LDAP.
Thank you for your time,
