System Center Orchestrator 2012 AD Connector Permissions

Just a quick note about something that I stumbled on when trying to automate some user account creation processes in Orchestrator 2012: The user account that you configure the AD connector with is the account under which all AD actions are performed. The documentation makes it sound like the Orchestrator service account is what is used, but that's not the case.

Hopefully this helps someone else out, since it took me a couple of hours to track down!
