Thank you for replying, but as always I think I get over excited and reply to things to quickly so apologies again. I am having another issue and I am not quite sure if its an issue or expected behavior. I could not find anything anywhere, documentation or website, that explained exactly what functionality with Active Directory is expected or available.
I do know I think I read somewhere that creating users and what not is not available, but when I click on Users under Administration I get the following error.
Server Error in '/' Application.
The server is not operational.
unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web
request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the
error and where it originated in the code.

I did a bunch of research on this error in relation to AD and it seems to be a connection string issue, which seems to be working, or a DNS problem which all my tests show that not to be the case. I also verified that port 389 is open.
So I started thinking that this function just might not work with Sitefinity, but I wanted to make sure. If I am supposed to be able to look up users through the Sitefinity Administration then can you give me some hints about this error? Also can you direct me to the documentation on what functionality is available with the Sitefinity AD Provider?
Thank you and I promise to be more thorough before posting next time.
