Common AD/LDAP Field Mappings

This topic provides examples of default Active Directory person schema fields and the LDAP attribute names that these fields map to. If your Active Directory deployment modifies the default schema, or if your users do not belong to the default schema, the information in this topic may not apply. Consult your domain administrator if you have questions about your Active Directory deployment.
