Active Directory Help

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has done this before with AutoIt or a similar scripting language.

I need to connect to the Active Directory server and fetch user information from the AD. I am basically creating an application that lets the user type in a login name and validate it with the Active Directory to see if it exists before continuing.

Is that ever doable with AutoIt??

Thanks for the help. Greatly appreciated.

There are more complex things you can do, but the basic reference would be:
$strDomain = "MyDomain"
$strAccount = "UserName"
$objUser = ObjGet("WinNT://" & $strDomain & "/" & $strAccount & ",user")
If IsObj($objUser) Then 
    MsgBox(64, "Exists", "User " & $strDomain & "\" & $strAccount & " exists")
Else
    MsgBox(16, "Non-Existing", "User " & $strDomain & "\" & $strAccount & " does not exist")
EndIf

LDAP could be used instead of WinNT for the WMI interface, you could query for other object types with the same name, limit the search to an OU, etc., etc.

It's all WMI stuff with ADSI.

Hi PsaltyDS,

thank you for your prompt response. I kept searching through the forum and I found access to a library specifically designed for the Active Directory (adfunctions.au3) which I downloaded and used its functions and it works perfectly for what I need it to do.

Thanks still for your help and effort. :)

Once you have it working with those UDF functions, take the time to open up the UDF file itself and check out how those functions work. Really pushes you up the learning curve!
