I am trying to find a quick, step by step tutorial on on to implement a tree view for my intranet that will show all the computer accounts in my domain. (this is obliviously only step number one, because once i can see them, I want to be able to query information from them.but one thing at a time right?)
Is there any free tool available that can be used to build Active Directry query also can i execute active directry query through c# code because while connecting to active directory through object model and iterating through each property of the active directory specially when all the property is not requierd the performance cost is comming. What I want is to query Active Directory domain get some property value ans save it in the sharepoint list, I am using object model to do this but at the cost of the performance. I am thinking to execute the query through C# code same as any Active Diretory Query tool to pull the value and then save it into the list.
I am new bie in Scripting world.I wrote a script in vb 2008 to query active directory information.Even though the script task executes successfully when i tried toretrieve records from the object variable using for loop container in ssis it gives an error the object variable doesnt have valid data n it.i suspect that i am facing errors in assigning the result set to the package variable declared as object.Please could someonehelp by having a look whether the data will be assigned correctly according to my script.i am trrying to pass the information queried from ad to package variable gvresults described as object.
I managed to do ASP.NET authentication work wih AD. Now, I want to query an OU in AD and display the result either ListView or GridView in ASP.NET page.[code]In the organizational unit (OU) UsersStudents there are following columns:First Name, Last Name, Pre-Windows 2000 Logon Name, Name , Type. I want to query column First Name, Last Name, Pre-Windows 2000 Logon Name in OU UsersStudents and bind the result to ListView or GridView.
You can query active directory with an OLEDB provider called ADSDSOOBJECT. This works great except it only returns the first 1000 rows. The following article shows how to work around this limitation in a vb script by setting the "page size" property of the command object. [URL]..I have been able to reproduce that code in VB.NET, but I am having problems getting it translated to OLEDB syntax, because there doesn't seem to be a "Page Size" property, or indeed a "properties" collection of any kind, in OLEDB.
I am trying to create a new user and set their password in AD LDS using asp.net vb. I'm binding to an instance of a directory entry, which is working fine. And I can add a user without a problem. The problem is that I can't seem to set the password when I add the user.Is this the right way to set the password
Is it possible (I'm sure it is) to validate a user's credentials against Active Directory without using Directory Services?I'm building a Browser-Based WPF application which requires users to login to and get validated via Active Directory. Since .Net 4.0 (or maybe 3.5) accessing Directory Services from an Application requires the application to be fully trusted. Since IE won't provide full trust to an application if it doesn't have the signing certificate in it's cert store, the application is refused startup permission.
If I don't use Directory Services, then I can leave the application as Partial Trust and validate my user's credentials without having to install a certificate on each user's machine.
I having a program built in VB.Net and would like to take in the users windows name and then compatre that with a security group in AD, if they are in a certain group then redirect them to the next page otherwise block them.I have tried many ways using many different snippets of code from different forums, but cannot find a code piece of code that works?
I would like to have all properties on a user from active directory. I find some property name as : distinguishedName, SAMAccountName, sn, givenName, TelephoneNumber, mail If you have a list of property? As each user has an ID in AD ?
I'm having a weird problem with active directory and the display name attribute. I can create an AD account with no problems, the account shows up, I can log on as the account, everything appears to be working as intended. The problem is, our company requires that the display name be in the form of "Lastname, Firstname". Thats all fine and dandy when you create an AD account use the MMC snap-in, you type in the users name as "Lastname, Firstname" in the display name field and when the account is created, the display name shows as "Lastname, Firstname" as you would expect.
The problem I am having is this, whenever I create an AD account programmatically, I can't for the life of me get the display name to show up as "Lastname, Firstname". The displayname property is set as such, checking the AD account using the MMC snap-in shows the display name is set correctly, but when looking at the list of user accounts, the account is always displayed as the users username. The account name I am using is "Test User", see pic below.
if you try to rename the account, the field it tells you it is editing is called Full Name? I can't find a property in AD even called Full Name so I am completely confused, here is a picture of me trying to rename the programmatically created account, as you can see, the display name field is set correctly even though it doesn't display that way. And of course, after renaming the account as seen below, the display name shows up correctly as "Lastname, Firstname"Here is the code I use to create the account, just for reference.
Public Sub CreateActiveDirectoryAccount(ByVal sUserName As String, ByVal sFirstName As String, _ ByVal sLastName As String, ByVal sUserPrincipalName As String, ByVal sPassword As String, _ ByVal sHomeDrive As String, ByVal sHomeDirLocation As String, _
i would like to be able to login on a webpage using a valid active directory username and password.user name and password are entered in textboxes. if they are correct then i would like to redirect to another page.how can this be coded.in a second task after some code is performed, log in as an administrator using code and unlock the account.i have heard that this is called impersonation. how can i perform the above?i'm using visual web developer 2008 and vb.net
Im trying to connect to AD and carry out some basic tasks for a .Net application written in VB .Net. I would like to create the application so when it loads, it automatically binds to the default AD domain that the user is logged onto. This has led me to writing the code
Dim domain As DirectoryEntry = New DirectoryEntry("LDAP://DC=domain,DC=com", Nothing, Nothing, AuthenticationTypes.Secure) domain.RefreshCache()
I am having some issues with the following script for adding an object to AD - The object being a user and then modifying the properties on it.
Error Line 350: Line 351: Dim adUsers As DirectoryEntries = dirEntry.Children Line 352: Dim newUser As DirectoryEntry = adUsers.Add("CN=" & sUserName, "user") Line 353: Line 354: newUser.Properties("givenname").Add(sFirstName)

I have a list of computers from the AD which also have IP addresses in one of the fields. The IP address does not seem to be accurate. It looks like the AD updates are not as frequent as the DHCP server.
We are developing our application using MS Visual Studio 2008 VB .Net. We have to use Active Directory Server for authenticating the user logging into the application. Does any one has code samples intergrating .Net and ADS?
We are cunrretly developing a solution for compact framework and windows mobile 6.5. The idea is that the user have to login using custom login for on the phone before they can do anything else. Our backend is WCF, and here we have planned to implement an interface based solution where the customer can select between a variety of "AuthenticationSources" one including Active Directory.Is there any clever way to do this using built in .NET functionality, or do I still have to do it the old fashion way like:
1) Write domain, user and password in the windows mobile login form.
2) send this info using http webservice to the wcf server, where the server check for this device, which is the preferred login source. If it is ad, it will load the ADauthenticator class, peform a LDAP query against the ad selected, and simply return true or false if user passed or not, then the webservice return tru/false to the device.
3) If the return answer is true, the device will store an encrypted registry key on the device indicating to the device client that the user is logged on.
4) If the user select logout, or if the device is restarted, or loses power, the registry key is cleared on boot.is this a good enough solution? The devices are NOT considered to be members of the actual domain. And this solution should handle a solution with a database source for logins.
I am trying to create a VB.NET application which will (hopefully) reduce some time spent on some of my departments helpdesk calls. The part that I am stuck with is how to use VB.NET to remove a user from a group. The following is code that I have been playing with:
I am coding in .NET 2.0 as I am unsure if the server it will live on will have 3.5 installed.
I'm writing code to connect to my Active Directory server using LDAP. I can connect usingLDAP://celtestdomdc1.celtestdom.localbut I can't connect usingLDAP://celtestdomdc1.celtestdom.local/CN=Users;DC=celtestd
I'm currently making my first program, its an active directory clean up tool. Right now I'm having diffculty getting it to search sub OUs that it sees, I can get it to look at one layer of the sub OUs. I just want more of a dynamic code so I don't have to keep repeating it like I did do. Also I'm not sure that I'm looking through active directory the best way.
I am writing an application where active directory validation is required before accessing the main form. There are 2 forms. Form 2 is the login form and form 1 is the main form. The main form would have a simple look, with about 10 checkboxes.I have managed to get the authentication working great but what now need to do is validate groups. Say if "user A" is in "groups A,B and C" and "user B" is in "groups B and C" i would like for them to use my login form, once they log in, the groups that they are members of would appear in a listbox on either form, (whichever is easiest) and is hidden from the user ... if they are in group A, then the main form would show only the first 3 checkboxes, if they are in group B, then it would show the 4th and 5th checkboxes, if in both groups then show the first 5 checkboxes etc.It is a simple idea, but is complicated to explain.As i said, the login form is working with the active directory... here is the code for the login form:[code]Form1 in the code is my main form, and wish for it to change according to which groups the user is in.
I am trying to get information from AD and populate it into a DataGridView. The code is as follows: dirEntry.Path = "LDAP://PATH" Dim dirSearcher As DirectorySearcher = New DirectorySearcher(dirEntry) dirSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("cn") dirSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("DN") dirSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("description") dirSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("info") [Code] .....
The DataGridView has columns defined for all the items like "cn", "DN", "description", "info" etc. From the above code, I can only see the "cn" getting listed. I did try to add using the following lines in the "For" loop but cannot access anything.
DataGridView1.Rows.Add(dirSearchResults.GetDirectoryEntry.Properties("DN")(1)) 'Add DN into the second column DataGridView1.Rows.Add(dirSearchResults.GetDirectoryEntry.Properties("description")(2)) 'Add description into the third column
How do I access the other fields from the AD record and how do I populate that information into the DataGridView?
Can someone tell me how Active Directory stores it's passwords for users? Is it like this answer : storing passwords in SQL Server Is it a hash and a salt or multiple hashes?
EDIT I ask because I want to mimic the way they store them for a custom authorization application I want to build. Or if someone can offer a existing framework or class that handles user authorization for a web application. If I can use asp.net membership for multiple applications using web service that would be even better.
I need to add multiple users to active directory in vb.net what would be my best way to do this? Although i see some dotnet classes for them its hard figuring this out for my first time. Mostly what must i be aware of when trying to add them? Multiple opinions on the matter would be fine but I really just wish to add users with basic information like firstname and lastname and maybe to specific group.
I am trying to add user to a Active Directory group which i already have access to but i am getting an error "Unspecified Error" Ca you guys please take a look at my code and let me know what i am doing worng?

I am developing an application to create users on AD LDS (ADAM in the previous version). I would like to use an Active Directory account to authenticate in AD LDS, and then create and modify users (in AD LDS) but I simply don't know how to do it using VB .Net or C#. This method is used in the ADSI Edit when I choose Advanced and Specify Credentials. After some research I believe that I have to user user Proxy Bind. ADSI Edit permits to bind with a domain account. So I want to replicate that process using VB .Net (preferably) or C#. This is the code that I use to connect to AD LDS: [Code]
I'm trying to pull the username of every user available through active directory. Here is the code my colleague first tried to use, but this method is burning all of the memory out and throwing out of memory exceptions. Is there a quick alternative?
Dim userList As ArrayList = New ArrayList Dim sPath As String = "LDAP://test.ca/OU=foo,OU=bar,OU=foobar,DC=test,DC=ca" Dim myDirectory As New DirectoryEntry(sPath, Nothing, Nothing, AuthenticationTypes.Secure) Dim mySearcher As New DirectorySearcher(myDirectory) mySearcher.Filter = ("(objectClass=user)")
