Issues with setting up LDAP

Hello all. This is my first time working with Openfire and I am having some difficulty setting up the LDAP connection. The hierarchy is as follows:

**Domain NC
**

|

**L__ DC=Company,DC=com
**

** |
**

** L__ CN=Users
**

** | L__CN=Administrator**

** | **

After reading the LDAP guide in the documentation I tried these settings, to no avail.

**Server Type: **Active Directory

**Host: ** **Port: ** 389

**Base DN: **DC=Company,DC=com

**Administrator DN: **CN=Administrator;DC=Company,DC=com

**Password: ** ********

When I try to “Test Settings” this error pops up:

Test: Connection Settings

Status: Error

Error authenticating with the LDAP server. Check supplied credentials.

Any help would be very appreciated.

Thanks!

on the line for administrator try

cn=Administrator,cn=users,dc=Company,dc=com

taken from the LDAP Guide for Openfire

It works! Thank you so much!
