If you misconfigure your katello to use LDAP auth, the login page shows a few "scary" looking errors, none of which are actually helpful to understand that there is something wrong with the ldap configuration

With the move of Katello to be an engine running within Foreman, any issues related to ldap configuration will be much different.  As a result, going to close this out and we can create new ones for any issues found.
