I can't login with AD credentials even if LDAP users are in mapped role


So I finally got LDAP strategy to work. NOw in Actions > Map Groups I can see the OU's I set up under LDAP Group Name. I see the LDAP Users populated with users from the OU for each LDAP Group Name. However, I cannot log in with the associated role, even if the user is seen in the LDAP users box and the selected role has all for roles selected. Am I missing something?
