When you connect to a directory server, you can do a DSE search to determine if it is an AD server or not. If the supportedCapabilities attribute contains the value "1.2.840.113556.1.4.800", you know it is AD.

How do you perform a root DSE search using the IP*Works! Ldap component? This is discussed in an LDAP tutorial on the nsoftware website. Basically its just a search in which the DN is blank, the search filter is "objectClass=*", and you have a base level search scope.
