DirectorySearcher dSearcher = new DirectorySearcher(dEntry, strSearch);

            //Account properites to load
            string[] arrPropertiesToLoad = { "displayName", "department", "manager", "sAMAccountName", "EmployeeNumber", "Title" };
            dSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.AddRange(arrPropertiesToLoad);

List Users from Active Directory

  

When i try to List the users from Active directory, i get this exception.

Error while processing.System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80072020): An operations error occurred at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind(Boolean throwIfFail) at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.Bind() at System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry.get_AdsObject() at System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.FindAll(Boolean findMoreThanOne) at System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher.FindAll()

The code i used is :

DirectoryEntry de = new DirectoryEntry(_path);DirectorySearcher deSearch = new DirectorySearcher();

deSearch.SearchRoot =de;

deSearch.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user) (cn=" + UserName +"))";

SearchResultCollection results = deSearch.FindAll();

 But the DirectoyEntry method is getting validated if i use the overloaded method : DirectoryEntry(_path, domainAndUsername, password);

Please advice me.

Function retrieving users by country against (Active Directory) LDAP

  
Hello I've got such openquery SELECT * FROM Openquery(ADSI, 'SELECT EmployeeID, displayname, mailAddress, country FROM '' LDAP://MY-LDAP-PATH '' WHERE country=''coutry_code' '   ') country_code is 3 letters i think sth in format like USA, FRA etc I will need to retrieve users from up to 3 countries let say and i would like to create from this query above a stored procedure (or better a FUNCTION)  where someone calling a function can specify from which country does he/she wants to terieve users - when none country specified a function should retrieve users from all 3 let say. I'm not very advanced in programming in T-SQL yet so my question is -> can the variable be specified inside Openquery ? like for example SELECT * FROM Openquery(ADSI, 'SELECT EmployeeID, displayname, mailAddress, country FROM '' LDAP://MY-LDAP-PATH '' WHERE country=''@country' '   ') ACTIVE DIRECTORY HAS LIMITION OF RETRIEVING 1000 RECORDS AT ONCE - BUT NONE OF THESE COUNTRIES HAVE MORE THAN COUPLE HUNDREDS HOVWEVER summing them in one query this number of course will exceed 1000 recoreds so queries i think should be splitted and joined with union ??? Can anyone provide some example code of such function  The other problem i have is that openquery againt ADSI  above works correctly when i use SSMS localy on the server (connectin

Customized list views and permissions to specific group users

  
Hi, I have created a custom list with 20 field/columns in wss3.0. I had four user groups(group1, group2,....3.....4) in my site collection with various levels of permissions. I have created four custom views (Group 1 view, Group2 view,...etc)in my list. Each view contains only certain fields out of 20. For example group 1 view contains field 1, 5, 7,10 and 13 of every item in my list.  My requirement is that when a user login, who is a member of group1. he should be able to view only Group1 view fields. He should not able to view other field/columns. I tried creating another field/column called as restricted users and wrote group names in that. In the View edit page I selected " show item when the column 'restricted users' is equl to [Me]. But I did not get it. Kindly help it out any one either programmatically or UI based. Thanks

Permission Errors for Users on Home Page only of SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager

  
I have spent days now investigating this problem, so any help very much appreciated! I have a remote web server 2003 running SQL Server R2 Express Edition with Reporting Services installed. I use Report Builder 3.0 locally to build report. If I login via Internet to Report Manager Web Page as an administrator I can perform all the expected and required actions, creating new folders and assigning permissions for users etc. I have added a new user "ReportUser" as a Browser of a child folder. If ReportUser longs on to home page, he receives the all too familiar error: User 'XXXXXXXX\reportuser' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. However, if the user starts at the child folder of home page, and then logs in, he sees the expected page, and can run the report!  This is not very satisfactory. How can I allow user to see home page, without an error message, but not be allowed to click on any folders to which he is not entitled? I am now aware that SQL Server R2 Express Edition has many limitations compared with full Editions (fixed roles, cannot manage Report Service from Management Studio etc) , and many of the "solutions" offered on the web just do not apply.   John Walton

people picker need to customize source of active directory users

  

Issue- setting the people picker to custom active directory OU

Scenario - The ad structure

Domain.com

     Company name(root)

      Department(OU)

                 General Users(OU)

                  Staff(OU)

Steps Taken

1)stsadm -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath -path "OU=STAFF,DC=domain,DC=com" -url http://domain.com

2)stsadm -o setproperty -url http://domain.com -pn peoplepicker-serviceaccountdirectorypaths -pv " OU=STAFF,DC=domain,DC=com "

 They  dont seem to have any effect on the people picker control as i can still get  all the users from all the different OUs.

I want to strict  it to the Staff OU.

IT seems really strange

In the Central admin > shared Services Providers> User Profile> Custom Source > I have set OU=STAFF,DC=domain, dc=com.

I found that the people picker is not connected to the user profiles.

:)

Any Idea Guys

Editing List that is populated by Active Directory

  

Hi,

I'm doing some work for a customer that has a Telephone Directory list on his Sharepoint intranet home page. The list is populated from the "Users & Groups" in sharepoint, but they can edit the entries to change things like extension numbers, etc within the list.

Recently, they have reported that they are unable to edit the entries. I have VPN'd onto their site and, indeed, they can't.

Having not designed their system myself, I can't confirm how the list was set up, so... here is my big ask:

1) How would this have most likley been set up?

2) What is the most likley cause for their newly-found restrictions?

They guy claims that he hasn't changed anything lately, but... well, we all know customers, right?

Sorry to be so vague about this. If I learn any more detail, I will post here.

Cheers,
AJ


Can I pass a user's active directory group as a parameter to reporting services?

  

Hi there,

I am wondering if I can pass a user's active directory group as a parameter to reporting services? If so, how can I do that (e.g. where can I get that group from?)?

Is there something as User.UserID for active directory groups?

Many Thanks and best wishes

Populate Drop-Down list box from Active Directory Data Connection?

  
Hi,

I recently created a data connection to my active directory, so that certain fields can be automatically populated given the user who is filling in the form.

However, I would like to have a drop-down box that is populated from Active Directory (i.e. the user of the form can select another AD member), the result of which will then populate other fields (with information such as Manager, Email Address, etc).

So, 2 questions:

  1. How do I get a drop-down list to populate with the members of AD?
  2. How do I get the result of this selection to populate other fields?
Cheers again - you guys are great!

Active Directory Issue : Validation fails for newusers and few randon users

  

Hi All,

We started observing this behaviour from past couple of days. Even the AD Validation fails for the newly created users. So there are few users for whom the Active Directory authentication fails. We are not sure why it is happening. The code and configuration is not a problem since the same code works for other environment which has different domains. Has some one seen this kind of behaviour before. Infact we had a service to authenticate users so initial culprit was the service but now we have minimize the problem domain to AD. I created a simple application which JUST VALIDATES the user against the AD but still the same problem.  I am getting very generic error which does not seem to help in debugging.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Is it possible to authorize users on on specific list items?

  

I need your help with an authorization probem in my application. Suppose I have 3 users - Peter, Paul and John in my application. Peter is in charge of Europe sales and Paul in charge of North America sales. When they login to the application, only Europe sales figures should be visible to Peter, while Paul can see only North America sales figures. Both of them report to John, who can see sales figures for both North America as well as Europe.

I've been trying this hard, but since I'm just a novice, I've been messing it up. Really sorry if I sound dumb.
