Can't get attribute values using LDAP (using VB) to non-MS LDAP server

Can't get attribute values using LDAP (using VB) to non-MS LDAP server

Post by hayimhende.. » Sun, 04 Jun 2000 04:00:00

I am trying to write a simple program in VBASIC using the ADSI-LDAP provider
to retireve the values of some attributes from an LDAP directory (on a
Solaris box).

While the standard ADSI / ADO objects seem to have no trouble accessing this
directory, I have only been able to retrieve object names (ADsPath ?) from
the returned results, but I have not been able to figure out how to get the
values of the attributes.

To recap my efforts: First I tried specifying the LDAP syntax search string

and while I got back all the ADsPath's to the required objects, the attribute
values I wanted to see (firstname, lastname) were not present.

 All right, so then I figured let me bind to the object itself  (since I now
have the DN) and get the attributes that way. So I then tried:

 but that doesn't work either. The only thing that comes back is ADsPath. The
firstname, lastname attributes did not show up.

So how can I see the attribute values? Is there some limitation on accessing
non-Microsoft LDAP directories? If anyone has a code sample (in VB) I would
much appreciate it as well.

Thank you in advance. If at all possible, if you could E-mail me a copy of
your reply would be of great benefit, since my news server does not get this
news group.

1. Multi-valued Attributes using the LDAP provider

I'm creating a script using ADSI (vbscript) to add users to our Netscape
Directory at the same time it adds to our AD.  Netscape allows and in some
cases requires multi-valued attributes to work correctly.  One example of
this is objectclass.  You need each value of "top", "person",
"organizationalPerson", and "interorgperson", etc for Netscape Servers to be
able to use the directory entry.

How can one use ADSI to add all of the information needed?
