Try changing this line

$filter=" where samAccountName='["+$ADAccountName+"]' "

idea from... http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/jun05/hey0621.mspx

Looked like that might be a possible after reading the article, but with the brackets in, it doesn't work with or with out a period.

0 in both for the $recordset.recordcount

Sorry... I'm at my end... but I'd be willing to bet Chris S's fnLDAPQuery() - http://www.kixtart.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=142043&page=1#Post142043 will do what you want. Maybe Chris will check in soon and give you some guidance... or maybe try messing with his example

 Code:
Dim $aAttributes,$sADsPath,$strFilter
Dim $aResults,$c,$r
 
$aAttributes = "mail","telephoneNumber","msExchHomeServerName"
$sADsPath = "LDAP://"+GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE").Get("defaultNamingContext")
$strFilter = "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(SAMAccountname="+@UserID+"))"
 
$aResults = fnLDAPQuery($aAttributes,$sADsPath,$strFilter)
 
For Each $r in $aResults
    If InStr($r,"=")
        Split($r,"=")[Ubound(Split($r,"="))]
    Else
        $r ?
    EndIf
Next

For splitting characters that are also used by kix, I prefer to avoid confusion and use the Chr() function for the charaters I'd like to Split.

For instance:
 Code:
$x = Split("somestr,ing",Chr(44))

Try using TranslateName() UDF to return the distinguuished name of the user object. Then use the DN in the query instead of the sAmAccountName.

Howard,
I had considered Translatename(), but had not tried it. If I use this function on an account name the does not have a period in it, it works fine, however, if I try it on an account name that does have a period in it, I get the following (Used your example):

Code I used with the Translatename()
 Code:
$DN = TranslateName (3, "", 3, "@LDomain\kelly.dague", 1)
  ? "DN = " + $DN[0]
  ? "Error = " + $DN[1]
  ? "ErrorText = " + $DN[2]

This is the result
 Quote:
DN =
Error = -2147352567
ErrorText = COM exception error "Set" ((null) - (null)) [-2147352567/80020009]

Something may be to be wrong or unexpected concerning your account properties. I have created a new test user in my domain with samAccountName "Howard.Bullock" and ran the attached script which properly returns the DN using TranslateName UDF. (This is an updated version but the internal COM is the same.)

Open the resulting "Props.txt" file that is created in the current directory. Review your properties such as samAccountName to insure that the your account contains the data you expect.

Let me know the result.

Please
 Code:
Break on

DEL "Props.txt"

$rc=SETOPTION ("WrapAtEOL","ON")

  Dim $NameArray
  $NameArray = TranslateName (3, "", 3, "@ldomain\Howard.Bullock", "1,2")
  if @error=0
    $UserDN            = $NameArray[1]
    $UserCanonicalname = $NameArray[2]
    ? "UserDN = " + $UserDN ?
    ? "UserCanonicalname = " + $UserCanonicalname ?
    WriteLog2("Props.txt", "UserDN = " + $UserDN)
    WriteLog2("Props.txt", "UserCanonicalname = " + $UserCanonicalname)
     WriteLog2("Props.txt","")

If the script provided above does not work for your account with a period. I suggest you use LDP.exe to bind to your domain and view the properties of the account is question.

I have tried your new script and it does work for most accounts with a period. There are a few that still have trouble and I will have to research them. I should be able to use the DN to pull the homemdb attribute. Hopefully I can make this work. It will save us a lot of manual work.
Thanks

This is an update to this issue. It is working fine now.

I was reading lines from an Exmerge file with Exchange 2003. I had ASSUMED the name that exmerge was applying to the PST file was the logon name. I discovered this is not the case. It actually pulls the user name from the LegacyExchangeDN which may or may not be the logon name. Therefore the problem with it having a period in the name was only because I was looking for the logon name with data from the LegacyExchangeDN. In those cases where I was having trouble the LegacyExchangeDN and the logon name were not the same, hence the error I was getting.

Howard, the Translatename() was not a fit for this project. Thanks for the suggestion though, it may come in handy elsewhere.

Allen, the fnLDAPQuery() worked perfectly, thanks.

Moral of the story: Always check the source!

Thanks everyone for your assistance.
