Active Directory is a database based system that provides authentication, directory, policy, and other services in a Windows environment.
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for querying and modifying items in directory service providers like Active Directory, which supports a form of LDAP.
Short answer: AD is a directory services database, and LDAP is one of the protocols you can use to talk to it.

“All Microsoft LDAP clients automatically request LDAP signing from domain controllers so, chances are, your network’s LDAP connections are already signed and encrypted without configuring this option. If you are sure all your non-Microsoft clients support signing, go ahead and require it.”

## Miscellaneous ##

NetApp Library List
Really useful link to see all that’s currently freely available in the NetApp library (can take a while to load.)

Technical Reports:

## NetApp KB ##

“create_ucode in clustered Data ONTAP is always 'on' and the convert_ucode value of 7-Mode is preserved. This is done by design. convert_ucode=on will trigger a conversion of a directory into unicode format when that directory is accessed by the NFS client for the first time after the option change.”
