Alfresco 3.4.d
Windows Server 2003

Hello all,

   I am new to Alfresco and LDAP AD and I am trying to get Alfresco 3.4.d Community edition to authenticate to my AD server.  I have read the wiki and I cannot get Alfresco to authenticate to my AD.  Is there a log that I can look at for some clues?  How does one know if thier site uses UPN or DN authentication?  I have tried both of these with no luck..I am sure that it is just something that I am misconfiguring on my end, but I would like to at least to look at some logs to get a clue. 

For starters, I have gone into the subsystem
and edited the copy of '' to match setting for my site and yes authentication is enabled here
   Is there any other place to enable ldap authentication?  After I make a change to the file I always restart tomcat.  Is that right thing to do or do not have to do this? 

Also, if someone could lead me to any type of logging so that I am able to see what errors I am getting or if it even thinks that authentication is turned on I would really appreciate it!

I did find one log in tomcat\logs named:  stdout_20110316.log and this could be the log that I need…in it I found: 
20:12:22,374  INFO  [management.subsystems.ChildApplicationContextFactory] Starting 'Authentication' subsystem, ID: [Authentication, managed, alfrescoNtlm1]
  does this mean that it is not even trying to use ldap-ad authentication?

thanks again
