Is an OU mandatory in AD for ldap synchronization?

Is an Organization Unit (OU) mandatory in Active Directory (AD) for ldap-ad synchronization?

I just configured Alfresco 3.3 to connect to an Active Directory. I'm a newbie in both and one of the firsts problems that I faced was that it seems mandatory the presence of an Organization Unit upstream. If I try to configure the ldap.synchronization.userSearchBase parameter without an OU element (i.e. only "DC\=mylab,DC\=loc") I get a synchronization exception error like "org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: 04280001 User and group import failed".

I tried to search on this forum for somebody who faced and fixed this issue yet, but the only workaround seems to be the definition of an Organization Unit below wich all users can be found.

Does anybody knows some tip to avoid the adjusting of the AD organization to the Alfresco configuration?

Thanks in advance.
