How to bind to ADAM using generic LDAP browsers

  1. Update your ADAM instance's schema and add "msDS-bindableObject" to the "auxiliaryClass" "User" object type. See "Understanding ADAM bind redirection" for more info.
  2. Create a new user (i.e. CN=Bind User,CN=Users,DC=example,DC=com") and add that user to the ADAM Administrators group (CN=Administrators,CN=Roles,DC=example,DC=com).
  3. Set a password for this user and then use this user's DN and password to bind to ADAM from any generic LDAP browser.
