Acegi + Ldap
I was wondering...
While configuring Acegi with LdapAuthenticationProvider and creating an initialDirContextFactory, why are the managerDN and managerPassword needed, if we are authenticating the details provided by a user via a login screen?
Any help appreciated!

I know in my case it is because I don't know the dn of the user until I search on the field I want to match and find it.
So I authenticate first with the manager, and then once I have the dn that is used with the password. I think this is a common case.
