LDAP database set to MicroSoft ADAM


LDAP Search fails if LDAP search attributes registry key below is set to search on CN.
Search works if regkey is set to DN or UID

REG_MULTI_SZ value, set to list of search attributes to be used in LDAP search. Only first five attributes are considered. The valid attributes are "fullName", "givenName", "sn", "cn", and "uid".


Verify that that the CN attribute is available in the ADAM database.
In this case the ADAM database was created without a CN attribute.

Either contact MicroSoft for help fixing ADAM or
Search on a different attribute
