Hi All,
I have a  existing ldap server , i have set the  authentication.chain=alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm to authentication.chain=myldap:ldap,alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm in "alfresco-global.properties"
my ldap server message is :
Base provider URL: ldap://sample:10389
Base DN: dc=userstore,dc=siteminder
Principle: CN=mytest,OU=Service Accounts,OU=Domain Administration,OU=AM,DC=Userstore,DC=Siteminder
Credential: 12345
now ,i set /opt/Alfresco/tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/Authentication/ldap/myldap/ldap-authentication.properties  below:

# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for authentication. It may be
# that this subsytem should only be used for synchronization, in which case
# this flag should be set to false.
ldap.authentication.active=true

#
# This properties file brings together the common options for LDAP authentication rather than editing the bean definitions
#
ldap.authentication.allowGuestLogin=true
# How to map the user id entered by the user to that passed through to LDAP
# - simple
#    - this must be a DN and would be something like
#      uid=%s,ou=People,dc=company,dc=com
# - digest
#    - usually pass through what is entered
#      %s
# If not set, an LDAP query involving ldap.synchronization.personQuery and ldap.synchronization.userIdAttributeName will
# be performed to resolve the DN dynamically. This allows directories to be structured and doesn't require the user ID to
# appear in the DN.
ldap.authentication.userNameFormat=uid=%s,ou=Service Accounts,ou=Domain Administration,ou=AM,dc=Userstore,dc=Siteminder

# The LDAP context factory to use
ldap.authentication.java.naming.factory.initial=com.sun.jndi.ldap.LdapCtxFactory

ldap.authentication.java.naming.security.authentication=simple

# Escape commas entered by the user at bind time
# Useful when using simple authentication and the CN is part of the DN and contains commas
ldap.authentication.escapeCommasInBind=false

# Escape commas entered by the user when setting the authenticated user
# Useful when using simple authentication and the CN is part of the DN and contains commas, and the escaped \, is
# pulled in as part of an LDAP sync
# If this option is set to true it will break the default home folder provider as space names can not contain \
ldap.authentication.escapeCommasInUid=false

# Comma separated list of user names who should be considered administrators by default
ldap.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=evan
# This flag enables use of this LDAP subsystem for user and group
# synchronization. It may be that this subsytem should only be used for
# authentication, in which case this flag should be set to false.
ldap.synchronization.active=true

# The default principal to use (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.principal=cn=mytest,ou=Service Accounts,ou=Domain Administration,ou=AM,dc=Userstore,dc=Siteminder

# The password for the default principal (only used for LDAP sync)
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.credentials=12345

# If positive, this property indicates that RFC 2696 paged results should be
# used to split query results into batches of the specified size. This
# overcomes any size limits imposed by the LDAP server.
ldap.synchronization.queryBatchSize=1000

# The query to select all objects that represent the groups to import.
#ldap.synchronization.groupQuery=(objectclass\=groupOfNames)

# The query to select objects that represent the groups to import that have changed since a certain time.
#ldap.synchronization.groupDifferentialQuery=(&(objectclass\=groupOfNames)(!(modifyTimestamp<\={0})))

# The query to select all objects that represent the users to import.
ldap.synchronization.personQuery=(objectclass\=userProxy)

# The user search base restricts the LDAP user query to a sub section of tree on the LDAP server.
ldap.synchronization.userSearchBase=ou\=AP,dc\=userstore,dc\=siteminder

# The name of the operational attribute recording the last update time for a group or user.
ldap.synchronization.modifyTimestampAttributeName=modifyTimestamp

# The timestamp format. Unfortunately, this varies between directory servers.
ldap.synchronization.timestampFormat=yyyyMMddHHmmss'Z'

# The attribute name on people objects found in LDAP to use as the uid in Alfresco

1. I hope to know ,where is wrong in my ldap-authentication.properties 
2. have other properties file need i to set?
3. where and how to set the ldap.synchronization.defaultHomeFolderProvider=userHomesHomeFolderProvider to run?
