removing sidHistory

Hi All,

Have anyone tried to remove sidHistory using C#?

I keep getting the following error when I use the PutEx method.

System.Runtime. InteropServices .COMException was unhandled
Message="Unspec ified error\r\n"
Source="Active Directory"
ErrorCode=-2147467259
StackTrace:
at ActiveDs.IADs.P utEx(Int32 lnControlCode, String bstrName, Object
vProp)
Thanks,
Alex

Hi Alex,

As for cleaning sidhistory, so far what I found is the following kb article
which provide the vbscript for cleaning sidhistory:

#How To Use Visual Basic Script to Clear SidHistory
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=295758

have you tried using VB.NET code which maybe easy to convert from vb. Or
you can consider keep the vbs script and use C# to programmtically invoke
cmd to execute the vbscript.

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng

Hi Steven,

Yup, I have seen that KBA before. I agree that it should be easier to
convert vbscript to VB.Net but since I am learning C# so I thought of doing
it in C#. Anyway, I have get it working.

Thanks,
Alex

Note that you should not translate VBScript samples to C# or any .NET
language for that matter), .NET offers a rich class library to be used from
managed code, these class libraries make it much easier to access AD objects
than it was ever possible from unmanaged code.
The .NET way to clear the SID-History looks something like this:

using(Directory Entry root = new DirectoryEntry( @"LDAP://RootDSE"))
{
string defCtx =
root.Properties["defaultNamingC ontext"][0].ToString();
using(Directory Entry re = new DirectoryEntry( "LDAP://" +
defCtx))
{
PropertyValueCo llection sidH =
re.Properties["sidHistory "];
if(sidH.Count 0)
{
sidH.Clear();
re.CommitChange s();
}
}
}

Willy.
