Yes, there is a serious problem with using the ADC and Unity. If you're syncing the AD information back to Unity 2.x you will almost certainly bring yourself to destruction. The ADC isn't too bright and makes some real bad assumptions about what some of our custom properties (objects like locations, call handlers, interviewers etc... that we add to the directory under the Unity folder but are hidden from the address book). When it sends those back via the ADC it maps them to the closest thing it understands which can cause all kinds of really unpleasant things to happen.

Short story, only use a one way connector FROM Unity out... do NOT set the connector to synch back to Unity.
