Getting the hang of it

Hi,

I've made a script where I want to get info from a LDAP server (NOT AD!). I have no proplems on getting normal LDAP objects as CN, SN, NAME etc. But When I want to get objects we have added to the LDAP I get an error:
COM exception error "get" (Active Directory - The Active Directory datatype cannot be converted to/from a native DS datatype) [-2147352567/80020009]

Hope someone can help me

Btw. I'm using kix 4.22

The code is like this:

BREAK On
$FileName="C:\TEMP\RanaUserInfo.txt"
;$FileName="C:\TEMP\ADUserInfo.txt"
;$LDAP="LDAP://ou=users,ou=kpdk,dc=q8int,dc=com"
$LDAP="cn=HK,cn=Q8"
$predom="LDAP://rana/"
$domain="cn=HK,cn=Q8"


GetAllADUserInfoToFile($domain)



FUNCTION GetAllADUserInfoToFile($dom)
DIM $type
IF EXIST($Filename) = 1
DEL($Filename)
ENDIF
$ou = GETOBJECT($predom+$dom)
FOR EACH $Item IN $ou
$domain=$item.name+","+$dom
$ClassDom=GETOBJECT($predom+$domain)
$kurt=$ClassDom.objectclass
$type=0
FOR EACH $i IN $kurt
SELECT
CASE $i="applicationprocess"
$type=1
CASE $i="q8ansathk"
$type=2
ENDSELECT
NEXT
IF $type = 1
CALL GetAllADUserInfoToFile($domain)
ENDIF
IF $type = 2
IF OPEN(1,"$FileName", 5)= 0
$InitialObj=GETOBJECT($predom+$domain)
$init=$InitialObj.get("initialer")
$out = WRITELINE(1, $init+@serror+@crlf)
$x = CLOSE(1)
ENDIF
ENDIF
NEXT

ENDFUNCTION

Well..

This will never work.

;$LDAP="LDAP://ou=users,ou=kpdk,dc=q8int,dc=com"

Is rana a DC? If so, you need entries for your dc too.

Like - dc=rana,dc=q8int,dc=com on the end of your LDAP String.


You need to uncomment this line.

Jooel,

You are right, you can just specify a DC as part of the LDAP://DC..

Maybe spark up a copy of ADSVW.EXE to see what canonical objects, etc. are.

I know it wouldn't work, that's why I have comment it out :-) It was just for testing.

The LDAP server is NOT a DC. I'm not communicating whit an AD. It's our own LDAP server

Hi,

It's not a Microsoft server I'm trying to communicate with. It's our own LDAP server (running on Solaris)

What does that mean?? The native LDAP object (like CN, SN, NAME etc) does work. It's only when I try to get our own objects I get this error

Perhaps you'd be better off with something like an ODBC LDAP connector.

The implication of the error message is that only native MS LDAP objects are supported via the LDAP: provider.

Hmm. To be honest I'm not sure

I assumed that someone would have already provided this functionality, but a quick search has not shown up anything useful.

What is your LDAP server based on? Commonly they have a SQL back-end where the data is actually stored so you can interrogate this directly rather than using LDAP.

The person who know what SQL we are running has left, so I can't answer that question

Thanks for you answer

Ok, this is a link to a posting which describes how to access an OpenLDAP service using VB. This should get you started:

You should be able to convert it to KiXtart almost word for word.

The best solution however would still be to talk to the back-end database directly.

What else do you know about the LDAP server software?

OK. I'll have a go.

I don't know much about the LDAP server, only it's a LDAP server and it's running on a Sun server

Here is a littoral translation of the sample code into KiXtart, however I don't have anything to test on here:

Code:
; Build the LDAP search condition...
$vSearch = "(sn=Leeds)"

; Instantiate the connection and log in to OpenLDAP
$oConn=CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
$oConn.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
$oConn.Open("ADs Provider", "cn=mail_verify,ou=accounts,dc=mckee,dc=com", "mypassword")

; Execute the search...
$oRS=$oConn.Execute("<LDAP://leconte/dc=com/dc=mckee>;" + $vSearch + ";cn,mail")
; Create an array of returned values
$vCount = 1
While Not $oRS.EOF
For Each $vValue in $oRS.Fields(0).value
"Got: "+$vValue ?
Next

$oRS.MoveNext
Loop
Exit 0

Hi,

Got the new search working fine with standard LDAP objects, but when I tried our own defined objects I get this error:
COM exception error "Execute" (Provider - Unspecified error) [-2147352567/80020009]
