One thing that probably happens here is the attributes that you use
GetInfoEx to fetech might not be set on the object. So when you try to
retrieve it back, it is not in the cache, so ADSI probably did an implicit
GetInfo for you, so in turn you get the other attributes back. Could you
check whether it is the case? In this scenario, ADSI should not do an
implicit GetInfo if GetInfoEx call fails to get the attribute back, but this
issue should have been fixed in win2k sp3 and on XP. What OS are you running
