Some output from strace

%> strace -o tmp net ads join -U "Admin" "users"

write(6, "0C\2\1\5c>\4\36ou=users,dc=SCL,dc=UTAH"..., 69) = 69  <-- here 
is the hard coded ou, I am not 100% familiar with the LDAP RFC but on a 
windows Active Directory there are CN and OU containers
select(1024, [6], [], NULL, {15, 0})    = 1 (in [6], left {14, 999000})
read(6, "0\204\0\0\0\222\2\1", 8)       = 8
read(6, "\5e\204\0\0\0\211\n\1 \4\25DC=scl,DC=utah,DC=ed"..., 144) = 144
rt_sigaction(SIGALRM, {SIG_IGN}, {0x535000, [ALRM], SA_RESTORER, 
0x2aaaab95ff00}, 8) = 0

Anyone shed some light here?  I need a way to overwrite that OU 
parameter to a CN...
