What I want to do is to login on the alfresco login page using ONLY the active directory credentials (I am using Active Directory Server).    How can I do this?   I keep getting this error:


16:27:37,865  WARN  [authentication.ldap.LDAPInitialDirContextFactoryImpl] LDAP server supports anonymous bind ldap://delljoeb:10389
16:27:37,896  INFO  [authentication.ldap.LDAPInitialDirContextFactoryImpl] LDAP server does not support simple string user ids and invalid credentials at ldap://delljoeb:10389
16:27:37,912  INFO  [authentication.ldap.LDAPInitialDirContextFactoryImpl] LDAP server does not fall back to anonymous bind for a simple dn and password at ldap://delljoeb:10389
16:27:37,928  INFO  [authentication.ldap.LDAPInitialDirContextFactoryImpl] LDAP server does not fall back to anonymous bind for known principal and invalid credentials at ldap://delljoeb:10389


Here are my configuration files:


ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=cn=%s,ou=users,ou=system
# The LDAP context factory to use
ldap.authentication.java.naming.factory.initial=com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory
# The URL to connect to the LDAP server
ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://delljoeb:10389
# The authentication mechanism to use
ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.authentication=simple
# The default principal to use (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.principal=cn=admin,ou=users,ou=system
# The password for the default principal (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.credentials=secret


My XML too just in case:

    You can also use JAAS authentication for Kerberos against Active Directory or NTLM if you also require single sign on from the
    web browser. You do not have to use LDAP authentication to synchronise groups and users from an LDAP store if it supports other
    authentication routes, like Active Directory.

            This maps between what the user types in and what is passed through to the underlying LDAP authentication.
           
            "%s" - the user id is passed through without modification.
            Used for LDAP authentication such as DIGEST-MD5, anything that is not "simple".
           
            "cn=%s,ou=London,dc=company,dc=com" - If the user types in "Joe Bloggs" the authenticate as "cn=Joe Bloggs,ou=London,dc=company,dc=com"
            Usually for simple authentication. Simple authentication always uses the DN for the user.
