DPA Active Directory error

On entering my connection information for Active director I receive this error: The AD-required name format is invalid.  Is this in reference to the domain name, or the username?  What format should be used?

The Active Directory user name to configure DPA Server to use for authentication is a name=value comma-separated list and you should use one of the following format examples:

  • Distinguished Name(DN): cn=BobSmith,cn=Users,dc=domain,dc=local
  • User Principal Name (UPN): bsmith@domain.local

For more options, examples, and details, check out the Configure DPA to use Active Directory or LDAP in the DPA Administration Guide.
