[Archivesspace_Users_Group] LDAP Configuration Woes

I'm new to setting up ArchivesSpace, and I'm having trouble getting it to bind to my LDAP.

I'm getting two errors, one is a code 49 saying Invalid Credentials (which I know are correct) and then it says failed to bind to LDAP directory.

Here is what my LDAP config block looks like (scrubbed a bit for privacy):
AppConfig[:authentication_sources] = [{
                                         :model => 'LDAPAuth',
                                         :hostname => 'dc.example.com',
                                         :port => 389,
                                         :base_dn => 'dc=blah,dc=example',dc=blahblah'
                                         :username_attribute => 'SAMAccountName',
                                         :attribute_map => {:cn => :name},
                                         :bind_dn => 'sAMAccountName=ldapuser,ou=users,dc=blah,dc=example,dc=blahblah',
                                         :bind_password => 'secretpassword',
This is a configuration similar to what other apps use. The only line that was really unfamiliar to us was the ':attribute_map=>' line.

I'm grateful for any help the community might be able to provide.
Thank you,
