Eventually, since active directory truncate long user names within sam account name, we must use user principal name and consult gc (lower performance).

Posting original request:
RHEV-M should be able to query the GC for user information.

Functional Requirements That Are Not Presently Possible:
Consider the case where one has two AD domains A and B. Between these
domains, there is a trust relationship such that B trusts A. It is
currently not possible to authenticate users present in A without directly
connecting to A.
Currently it _is_ possible to configure RHEV-M to use several AD:s but
that requires that RHEV-M should be able to connect directly to all of
them. If a firewall is preventing this, users from A can not be used
although there is a trust between them.
