Sorry for butting in, but this keeps driving me nuts...so what is the 
point of telling people to use that port? I keep hearing "you can't use 
389 with AD because some data won't be there" and then I see people say 
you can't use the GC port because some data won't be there. I just don't 
understand this.

What I really don't get is why people don't just use a freakin' database 
and avoid all this nonsense, but let's stick to non-religious topics.
