Access a remote active directory

view story

http://serverfault.com – I'm currently trying to query a remote Active Directory on a Windows Server 2008 R2. However, I'm not able to query the directory if I enter the following string in the cmd line: dsquery user -name m* -s ip:389 -u -p Furthermore, I tried to access the directory with: ldap://: but it didn't work either. I received the following error message: The server is not operational. Is there an option with which I can enable the remote access of an Active Directory? I think there is a misunderstanding here: The Server which holds the active directory is a lone server, a playground, without any c (HowTos)
