Win2k Native AD mode

Hello list,

I’ve been having Issues™ with my LDAP auth. I’ve only just checked
and my predecessor has the DC running at Win2k Native functionality…
not Win2k3.

Would this affect ExternalAuth’s ability to do proper LDAP lookups
against AD?

There’re no NT or Win2k machines anywhere on this network. I’ve no idea
why it’s set up like this.

Argh,

Rob

  1. It should have no effect, Win2k AD was as shoddy as Win2k3 at doing
    LDAP. The interface from outside should be the same.

  2. Upgrade the base functionality to 2003. It only takes a few clicks
    and if you have no Win2k/NT machines it will make no difference to the
    network, it will simple give you extra functionality that you can choose
    to use or not.

Kind Regards,
