Hello Boris,

Nice tests :-)

I would suggest a few things...

1. Network tests generally takes a long time to execute. Such (or most) test
in other assemblies have been given a
[Category ("InetAccess")]
either on the [Test]ed method or on the class (the [TestFixture]) if all
tests requires network access.

2. Hardcoding the LDAP server seems a bad idea as it will requires anyone
using the tests to make local modifications to many source files.
What about keeping the server name in an environment variable ? e.g.

3. Another advantage of using an environment variable is that it would be
possible to ignore all the tests (or some of them) if the environment
variable isn't present. I'm doing something similar for the CAS tests - i.e.
if the security manager is not enabled then all CAS tests are ignore.

This can be put the [SetUp] or [TestFixtureSetUp]

LDAPServer = Environment.GetVariable ("MONO_LDAP_TEST_SERVER");
if (LDAPServer == null) {
	Assert.Ignore ("No LDAP test server configured with
