    Default Having trouble setting up GAL with Active Directory or LDAP - GUID's showing up

    Disclaimer: I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to LDAP.

    A new Windows domain has been created on Windows 2008 in order to converge a few other domains we have. All users will have their accounts on this domain and the goal is to have LDAP correctly populated. On a Zimbra test server, I've attempted to configure the GAL for this domain via LDAP (because I couldn't get AD to work) and am getting a lot of extra trash from Active Directory including GPO's, etc. The thing I'd most like to do is get AD working instead of figuring out LDAP.

    I ripped my LDAP filter, Autocomplete filter and LDAP search base from a post I found here.

    LDAP URL: - port 3268

    LDAP filter: (&(|(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(gn=%s*)(mail=%s*)))
    Autocomplete filter: (|(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(gn=%s*)(mail=%s*))
    LDAP search base: dc=company,dc=net

    I have the option checked to "Use GAL search settings for GAL sync" which could be setup poorly as well since I didn't know what I was doing. I did get the LDAP service turned on so results are being delivered but they're filled with gibberish.

    You can have a look at what I did in this thread:

    I did eventually trim the filters down by factoring out the "(!(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)) ", so they ended up looking like this:

    and autocomplete filter is:
    The filters make a lot more sense when you add some whitespace, e.g.:
    LDAP Filter=(&
    Release 7.2.0_GA_2669.UBUNTU10_64 UBUNTU10_64 FOSS edition
