An LDAP administrator change the password for or removed the 'testuser'
account? Happened to me last week.
That was my first thought. We checked and the account was there and we reset the password this morning to make sure no one had changed it. The LDAP admin says that he thinks my user isn't authenticating but nothing has changed in my code

Other connective information possible change?
Can you connect to this server using this account with some other LDAP
tool such as Softerra's LDAP Browser? (It's free if you don't have one)
Whenever I have LDAP issues I load an LDAP browser to help troubleshoot issue. I think you can get a free one from softerra. The last issue I had with ldap I had to add the domain to the username i.e. domain\username and in another app I had to use the syntax email@example.com to authenticate.
