How to configure LDAP login


Wasn't sure what forum ...

I have installed Ubuntu on a workstation. We have a Linux DC server on the network. I want to have users log in using domain credential. According to other threads, LDAP is the way to do that. I know nothing about LDAP - to that point, recommended newbie links for LSAP are welcomed. Those I have found require a lot of assumed knowledge.

I believe LDAP is running on the DC. The following command works from another Linux server on the network, though I haven't tried it from the Ubuntu workstation yet:

Code:
$ ldapsearch -xLLL -H ldap://mail:389 -D "cn=Administrator,CN=Users,dc=HPRS,dc=local" -W -b "dc=HPRS,dc=local"
Can someone point me it the right direction?
