Well, the man page for ldap_error has this in it:
LDAP_UNAVAILABLE The DSA is unavailable.

Not exactly helpful. DSA is directory server agent, which I guess is
is the AD server in this case.

I poked around a little bit and it seems like this error can be related
to the ldap client being unable to negotiate an authentication protocol
with the server. Did you compile mod_ldap with SSL enabled? I think I
read somewhere that by default AD only accepts encrypted requests.

The only other thing I can think of is maybe there is something wrong
with your AuthLDAP parameters? I can post what worked for me tomorrow
if you'd like.

Again, don't take any of this as gospel, I just setup my configuration
using an Apache/AD/LDAP recipe I found online.

I've been told that to get what you want
You just gotta give what you can.  
But I know for what I want -- it don't come easy as that.
