    Hi, I was looking for some advice and wondered if you knew the answer....I know its a bit off track!
    We are looking at using vbulletin for our intranet forums (based on my experience here) and are looking at using an external source for our user lookup (ldap to Active Directory). Have you seen this work or do you just use the products local users?
    Cheers

    I'm not sure if VB supports any type of LDAP sync at the moment, but if you're running a SQL server, it would be very easy to have it syncing with the vb_user table

    A SQL Script piggybacking on a cron job that ran every 6 hours would probably do the trick.

    It'd be far easier to write a custom login page that uses ntlm auth that queries ad directly. Replicating the directory can be a pain in the proverbial and is the old way of doing it.

    or look into a form of Identity management software
