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.

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 ???

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


SQLServer Error: 15404 with Active Directory

  

Hello,

I'm having trouble running jobs with my active directory (ADS) account. I've setup my SQL services to run under an ADS account, but jobs cannot seem to query ADS for user information. We're running Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2005 SP2.

 Here is the error message:

==

The job failed.  Unable to determine if the owner (ADS\me) of job eFASRtest has server access (reason: Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'ADS\me', error code 0x5. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 15404)).

==

 

also this message in log:

==

[298] SQLServer Error: 15404, Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'ADS\me, error code 0x5. [SQLSTATE 42000] (ConnIsLoginSysAdmin)

==

 

I have done a *lot* of searching and cannot find the solution. I believe the 0x5 code is access denied. 

The same job runs if I change the owner to a SQL login that's not an ADS account.

I'm not certain how to confirm that the SQL Agent account is the account actually querying ADS, also.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

 Thanks,

adding a service reference throws a contract error

  

Hi

I added a service reference via the add service reference method. I can see all of its services in the intellisense but when I run the project and it executes the line where I instantiate the service : MyProjectName.ServiceReferenceName.IServiceReferenceClient  client = new  MyProjectName.ServiceReferenceName.ServiceReferenceClient;

it throws this error:

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'ServiceReferenceName.IServiceReferenceClient' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

 

Now this within my class library and I have added the service reference in my class library project.

Kind Regards
