[SOLVED] AD lookup by SID

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Does anyone know how to lookup a user account by SID in active directory? I have looked through the AD UDF and didn't find anything specific (I already tried _AD_GetObjectProperties). I am running a Win32_UserProfile query and I'm grabbing the users ID by the LocalPath, but the account could have been renamed and the folder kept the old name.

If you have the SID and need the UserID, look at the _Security__LookupAccountSid in the Security UDF included with AutoIt. If you have the UserID and need the SID, look at _Security__GetAccountSid or _Security__LookupAccountName.

Use function _AD_GetObjectsInOU. use something like:

$SID = <here goes your sid>
$aResult = _AD_GetObjectsInOU("", "(&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(objectSID=" & $SID & "))", 2, "sAMAccountName")

To lookup an account by SID I think you'll need function _Security__LookupAccountSid (or my AD solution posted above).

This worked for me. I didn't know you could get this fancy with your ADF. Thanks!

Just out of curiosity: Does _Security__LookupAccountSid return the same result?
