Alfresco Share 3.2 Very Simple LDAP Authentication

I am brand new to Alfresco, and have read the wiki and forums as far as configuring LDAP.  All I want to do is setup authentication to go against our ldap server  - that's it.  But I can't seem to get it to work.  Here are the steps I have taken - can somebody help me figure out where I am going wrong?

    1. I logged in as admin/admin, and created a new user that exists in ldap (e.g. jsmith)
    2. I updated alfresco-global.properties to have the following:
      authentication.chain=ldap1:ldap
    3. I created the following folder structure:
      tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/subsystems/Authentication/ldap/ldap1
    4. I copied the ldap-authentication.properties to the directory above
    5. I updated ldap-authentication.properties to include:
      ldap.authentication.java.naming.provider.url=ldap://mrl1xodc01.mycompany.com:389 (where mrl1xodc01 is the server, and mycompany is the name of my company)
    5. I restarted alfresco
At this point, have I done everything that's necessary to get Alfresco to authenticate against my ldap server?  Obviously I'm missing something, but I'm not sure what.
