Been struggling with this all day....
I am completely new to LDAP and ADSI, but I host a private website secured
by NTFS and users in AD. I desire to use a page where users can change
online their passwords.
I have tried the script listed here;
Spent all day with a headache reading about LDAP and ADSI
The script worked fine with one exception when I used;sConnectString =
"WinNT://bigboat/" & sUser & ",user",
When I changed the users password.... it did not change it, but added the
password. (1 user 2 valid passwords ? ? ? )
So I figured that it has to do with using AD.... so I changed the script as
discussed in the article as follows,
sConnectString = "LDAP://CN=" &
sUser & ",OU=users, " &
and got the following results. (info changed for security)
User name is: user -- 123456
New Password is: testing
Connect string: LDAP://user.mydomain.local
The server is not operational.
/private/Account/ChangePassword.asp, line 24
I am running the following;
Win2K Server, Basic Authenication, Host Headers, IIS5, FP 2002 Extensions,
using sub-domain to create the private website.
I am not currently running SSL, but plan on adding it..... Is my second
problem have to do with not running SSL, I know it suggests to run SSL to
hide plain text passwords being caught... but is it necessary.
Any and all help/direction is appreciated, Thanks
