i´m working on my installation routines for ad remoteloader to work on
windows server 2008 r2 64-bit and am testing at the moment.
so far the installation itself´s seems to work as desired. when i start
the remoteloader service and try to connect to it from the engine-side i
get an error.

DirXML: [02/16/11 16:33:37.31]: ADDriver: rootDSE information needed.
DirXML: [02/16/11 16:33:37.31]: ADDriver: Make unauthenticated

via ldp (on the server itself = local machine) i can connect
anonymously to active directory (connect with simple-bind and no
user-credentials) and get information regarding the rootDSE (in essence
the information the engine is requesting through the remoteloader) .
skimmed through local security policy and found two entries of interest
(to me at least - without knowing too much of windows server 2008 yet):
Domain controller: LDAP server signing requirements Not Defined
Network security: LDAP client signing requirements Negotiate signing

the remoteloader is configured as a service (with "dirxml_remote
-config <config-file> -service install") and patched to the max (as well
as the engine). ssl between the remoteloader and ad is not configured on
the driver-object.

remoteloader: idm361remoteloaderir3
ad-driver: idm40adir1
engine: idm361engineir3

maybe someone out there already solved the problem

thanks in advance, florian
