ADSI :: Permission Errors in Web Application

If you are trying to access Active Directory services using ADSI in a web application, and your web server is not an Active Directory controller; you might get Permission Errors, (especially if you are trying to change user passwords etc).

If you are getting similar errors, try enabling Basic Authentication. Caution: Password will be transmitted between client computer and web server in a plain text, if it’s critical, use SSL. The web server needs to forward the password to the active directory controller, you either should have a Kerberos setup; or a web server should have the password in plain text, and enabling Basic Authentication does this job.

I enabled Basic Authentication; I will look into Kerberos later.
