Win7 LDAP/AD Wierdness

2 posts in this topic

I'm using the following code snippet to add a computer account to a group in Active Directory, and it is working properly.

$oGroup = ObjGet("LDAP://CN=" & $vGroupName & "-StandardWorkstations,OU=Groups,OU=" & $vSiteOU & ",DC=domain,DC=net")
$oGroup.Add("LDAP://CN=" & @ComputerName & ",OU=" & $vDevTOU & ",OU=Workstations,OU=" & $vSiteOU & ",DC=domain,DC=net")
$oGroup.SetInfo

My problem is that on Windows 7 a folder structure and file is created in the script folder when it is run. If I run my script from C:\Script.exe it creates the following structure: C:\%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SchCache\domain.net.sch

The file appears from all indications to be a normal copy of the LDAP schema, but I'm not sure why it would be writing out to this location when this process is called from an AutoIt executable, and if there is any way to fix it (this doesn't happen when I do the same thing through VBScript).

My assumption is that the script is trying to write to the %LOCALAPPDATA% system variable when it runs in Windows 7, and I can access that system variable without issue outside of the script, so I'm not sure why it would create a folder with that name.

Would you be so kind to test with my Active Directory UDF (for download please see my signature) and so something like:

_AD_Open()
$iResult = _AD_CreateComputer("OU=" & $vDevTOU & ",OU=Workstations,OU=" & $vSiteOU & ",DC=domain,DC=net", @ComputerName, @Username)
ConsoleWrite("Result: " & $iResult & ", @error: " & @error & @CRLF)
_AD_Close()

To join the computer to the domain use _AD_JoiNDomain.
