LDAP Problem with .NET - Unknown error (0x80005000)

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am trying to create a proof of concept to show how to connect to an LDAP
server and how to search for values but I do not get anywhere. Here is what I
have so far:

Dim objEntry As DirectoryEntry
Dim objSearcher As DirectorySearcher


objEntry = New DirectoryEntry("ldap://www.openldap.com/dc=OpenLDAP,dc=org",
Nothing, Nothing, AuthenticationTypes.Anonymous)

objSearcher = New DirectorySearcher(objEntry, "(ou=People)")
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

If Not objSearchResult Is Nothing Then
'Do something
End If

Catch ex As Exception

result.Text = ex.Message & vbNewLine & ex.Source

End Try

My code fails at the line:
objSearchResult = objSearcher.FindOne()

with the unhelpfu error of Unknown error (0x80005000)

As you can see I use the www.openldap.com directory and I can connect
anonymously using the Softeerra LDAP Browser 2.5

Any help would be greatly appreciated 

PS: I know there is already a similar thread (http://forums.asp.net/thread/1028020.aspx) but none of the suggeste

asp.net and ldap Unknown error (0x80005000)


I am trying to connect to my college LDAP directory using ASP.NET. This LDap
does not have security as it returns only user demographic information.
What i am trying to do is, i am trying to look up all the information for
the user with user id 'testuser'. The following is the Vb.net code for my
aspx page:

Dim oRoot As DirectoryEntry = New
Dim oSearcher As DirectorySearcher = New DirectorySearcher(oRoot)
Dim oResult As SearchResult
Dim propName As String
Dim obProp As Object

     oSearcher.Filter = "uupid=testuser"
     oResult = oSearcher.FindOne
     For Each propName In oResult.Properties.PropertyNames
           For Each obProp In oResult.Properties(propName)
                   Response.Write("name= " & propName)
                    Response.Write("value= " & obProp)
Catch Ex as Exception
End Try

The above code fails at the line "oResult = oSearcher.FindOne" and gives me
an error which is useless: "Unknown error (0x80005000)"
Please help me!! Thanks in advanc

Solved: LDAP authentication: error code 49 - 80090308, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52

Hi, I have a problem conneting to another domain (far.away.domain). We have a two-way trust to this domain. Also I can access the DS using ADSI edit and our Administrator account (ourdomain.com). I tried several types of credentials (userid = "CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=ourdomain,DC=com", "Administrator @ ourdomain.com" (without blanks)...). Connecting to ourdomain.com is no problem, but to far.away.domain I can't connect, I always get the error 525 (user not found). What could be the problem? Have I to use an entry from the ForeignSecurityPrincipals CN of the far.away.domain? I also tried to connect using Softerra LDAPBrowser and a command line ldapsearch without succes and with not a better error message. But why is it not possible to use a trusted account, or is this a active directory feature and does not work with pure LDAP bindings? Best regards, Nils.

Unknown Error while uploading a document

hi, While uploading a document , it says 'unknown error' after loading long time. while checking in log file, no entry with respect to this. How to find the cause of this Issue. Please Guide me

run-time error's do not jump to problem line but to assembly with some xml error.

  Used too, when there was a runtime error the ide would break at the line that caused the problem. Now I'm thrown into some assembly code with the error System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException was unhandled   Message='The invocation of the constructor on type 'Main.MainWindow' that matches the specified binding constraints threw an exception.' Line number '4' and line   Which is extremely uninformative and inefficient. I can look down the chain to find the error thrown but this still is not very informative. How the heck can I get it back to the way it used to be? This has something to do with wpf and the assembly code has System.Windows.Markup.XamlReader.RewrapException as the address. I spend anywhere from 10x to 10000x as long because of this. If the code is simple then I still have to read the error code and click a button which takes time.   Also, I'd rather it break on the line and quit the process as it used to do. I don't need JIT debugging.  

Strange Problem - SSIS Fails with "Syntax error, permission violation, or other nonspecific error".

Hello, I have a strange issue while I am deploying a package to one of the environment server. I have 2 XML Source, in the DataFlow, and one will extracted based on a value of variable that is passed from run time (package is executed from a Job) and other will be extracted all time. The next Step I have is a Execute SQL Task in ControlFlow wihich will execute after DataFlow. This has 2 input parameters and some SQL query that uses the param. Now this one fail on the target environment with below error: failed with the following error: "Syntax error, permission violation, or other nonspecific error". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly. I got the error when I did a SSIS Text File Log. Note: If I run the package in BIDS with the same XML files it work. Also when I deploy the package to my Dev Server it works. When I compare the Dev DB with the target environment DB - Both are same. The Service Acount has permission - as I can see the DataFlow task completed. Another Point: The XML Load Data Flow that executes based on the Variable Value does not execute on target environment, even if the value is passed as "True" (It is Boolean Type) But this variable is NOT an input for the Execute SQL task that fails. I am not sure w
