Right - and as Joe points out, this is the DataSynchronizer server, so technically the "web interface" for DataSync does not support AD for authentication (i.e., for the admin users or for users to set up their address books, etc.), but if you are using LDAP auth for GW through AD, even DataSynctronizer will use that for device authentication. However you DO set it to GW authentication, and not LDAP on the DataSync server, even though that seems contrary to what seems logical.
