UCS Active Directory Authentication Integration Script

Version 1

    This script will configure all the parameters in UCS required to integrate it with Active Directory for Authentication with various roles.  This integration requires no schema extensions and relies of Security Groups mapped to users in AD.  The script also requires the creation of a Service Account in AD to allow UCS to validate the credentials.  This Service Account requires minimal privileges in AD and should have a long lived password to prevent authentication failures.  The script also builds a 'local' authentication domain which will allow locally created users in UCS to still be used for access.  This can be important in the event of AD integration failure.  LDAP authentication also relies on DNS and NTP so the script offers to assist these elements also.  The script has a global variables section with examples that must be customized to your deployments requirements
