I'm hoping I can use some help.

I'm configuring dovecot_ldap, but I can't seem to be able to get dovecot to authenticate the ldap user.

Below is my config and log info:

hosts = 192.168.128.45:3268
dn = cn=Administrator,cn=Users,dc=company,dc=example,dc=com
dnpass = "passwd"
auth_bind = yes
ldap_version = 3
base = dc=company, dc=example, dc=com
user_attrs = sAMAccountName=home=/var/vmail/example.com/%$,uid=1001,gid=1001
user_filter = (&(sAMAccountName=%Ln))
pass_filter = (&(ObjectClass=person)(sAMAccountName=%u))

dovecot.conf

# 2.0.19: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
# OS: Linux 3.2.0-33-generic x86_64 Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
auth_mechanisms = plain login
auth_realms = example.com
auth_verbose = yes
disable_plaintext_auth = no
mail_access_groups = mail
mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u
mail_privileged_group = mail
passdb {
  driver = pam
}
passdb {
  driver = passwd
}
passdb {
  args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext
  driver = ldap
}
passdb {
  args = scheme=CRYPT username_format=%u /etc/dovecot/users
  driver = passwd-file
}
protocols = " imap pop3"
service auth {
  unix_listener /var/spool/postfix/private/auth {
    group = postfix
    mode = 0660
    user = postfix
  }
}
service imap-login {
  inet_listener imap {
    port = 143
  }
  inet_listener imaps {
    port = 993
    ssl = yes
  }
}
ssl_cert = </etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem
ssl_key = </etc/ssl/private/dovecot.pem
userdb {
  driver = passwd
}
userdb {
  args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext
  driver = ldap
}
userdb {
  args = username_format=%u /etc/dovecot/users
  driver = passwd-file
}
protocol imap {
  imap_client_workarounds = tb-extra-mailbox-sep
  imap_logout_format = bytes=%i/%o
  mail_plugins =
}
