LDAP

8 posts in this topic

I want to use the following line in a script.

$oUser = GetObject(LDAP://cn=Smith, Joe,ou=Sales,dc=MyDomain,dc=com)

But this doesn't work due to the "," in de common name. Is there a way that I can solve this?

Changing the common name to Joe Smith is not an option. I have to make it work with cn=Smith, Joe

Please help

Then I must have made a typo.

mmm your question is not enough accurate

LDAP and getobject WORKS well all the time

If i understand well, your name is "Smith, Joe" ?

are you sure ? this Distinguished Name is return by a request ?

verify your syntax, and verify your rights.

After, what do you want t return ?

are you sure there is such an entry in your LDAP directory? In ADS there is

usually only an entry for the "display name" of the user, which is usually

of the format "firstname lastname" or "lastname firstname", so there is

no "," between the two.

e.g.

"cn=joe test,ou=sales,dc=test,dc=com"

or

"cn=test joe,ou=sales,dc=test,dc=com"

Use Softerras ldapbrowser (www.ldapbrowser.com) to view the content of

your ADS structure and figure out how the user is stored in the directory.

EDIT: In general - search the forum for "+objget +ldap" to find some working LDAP samples.

EDIT#2: To be a bit more clear. It is absolutely possible to have a user with a DN of "cn=Smith\, Joe,ou=Sales,dc=MyDomain,dc=com" if you create it like that. It's just not the standard!

Yes, that's not a standart, and it could be really complex to lead it

in the future if you plan to develop more ldap scripts

for now, i think like /dev/null that your ADs path is not correct
