There is no specific configuration required for LDAP on the ACE. The only thing that needs to be taken into account is that no L7 processing is supported for LDAP, so, you will only be able to load-balance at L4
The main effect of this is that, in case you need stickiness, you will be limited to the src-ip option.
For the health-monitoring, as part of the default probe scripts, there is one for LDAP which will check that the server is really able to serve requests. I would suggest you to have a look at it.
Did you get this working?
I am trying to get secure Ldap load balancing to work on ACE 4710 running version A 1(8.0). Currently It is only working when pointing directly to the real servers. I am using normal tcp probe on port 646 for checking server health status.

In a way I got it working...
The thing that didn't work was when we wanted to take a realserver out of service the clients got a RST that they couldn't handle. So we didn't take the LB solution into production.
Got a tip to put the the second as a backup rserver but haven't evaluated that.
