Unable to use ActiveDirectory

It tried to set up a LDAP catalog using our AD, but cannot get it to work.

The configuration is:
ServerAddress: the IP address of our domain controller
Server Port: 389
Bind Login: CN=Mercurial,OU=SBSUsers,OU=Users,OU=MyBusiness,DC=it-gmbh,DC=de
BindPassword: XXXX
Base Container: OU=Users,OU=MyBusiness,DC=it-gmbh,DC=de
LDAP Authentication: Enabled

When trying to log into hglab as a domain user, I get following error below.

Any idea what is wrong or how I can diagnose the problem?

    I'm one step further. If I just enter the user name instead of the distinguished name (as the hint text says) in the Bind Login field, the LDAP catalog works at least for some users [for other uses, I get an exception"while trying to retrieve the authorization groups, an error (5) occurred" - there are quite some google hits for this error message].
    So for now, you may close this (and perhaps improve the Bind Login int text).

    Sorry for the delayed reaction on my part.

    How are things going with AD integration?
