Hello rklebano,

Can you give some more side information? What are you pointing at, can you explain what you try to accomplish and what the problem is you are facing?

To share some of my experiences with you: I have queried a Win2k8 domain from a non Windows host (a Perl script running on Linux) using basic authentication. If you make sure your windows policy allows basic authentication for the userID you are using it will work. You can even query your Global Catalog, which is better indexed, using this logon type.
If you are forced to use MS propriety logon types I assume that Ironport will not be able to connect.

Steven.

Hi Steven,

We are trying to achieve a native Server 2008 AD domain. Unfortunately our WSA and ESA's are unable to use Server 2008 domain controllers to authenticate against. The WSA have a preview version of AsyncOS 6.0 (Aurora) that supports 2008 AD authentication. I was wondering if there was a version of the AsyncOS for the ESA that supports that as well.

As you point out the 6.0 version for WSA has this support. Can you tell me what your needs are for ESA? Binding for recipient validation? Administrative authentication?

Hi Steven,

I was refering to recipient validation. I've actually done testing with AsyncOS 6.5.1-005 and it actually supports Server 2008 AD. Thank you so much for all your assistance.
