Verifying a user-id exists

How can I verify a user-id has a domain account given only the user-id
(if I don't have the password)?

How can I verify a user-id has a domain account

Here is one way:

Pass to DsGetDCName() the name of a domain. That will get you the name of
the server on which the domain controller runs. Then you can use that server
name in a call NetUserEnum() to enumerate all of the accounts in the domain
or NetUserGetInfo( ) to retrieve information about a particular account.

Of course, you may need account operator privileges or some such to access
the data.

I'm doing a rough validation of an email address client-side (using js), but it's not enough - our customer service people are apparently incapable of typing in an email address without error - we get spaces, missing '@', multiple '@' which we can field, and simple mis-spellings, which we can't. I'd like to automate a 'mailto:' popup for them on submit, along the lines of "thanks for your email address, just verifying I've got it right"....

http://www.icarusindie.com/wiki/index.php/Server-Side_Javascript_Check Sample source included This method requires that your pages are PHP enabled and you have mySQL. Although I suppose you could also use PHP sessions (not cookies as they're client editable). You could actually use any server side scripting language such as Perl or ASP and any database like MS SQL Server. I prefer PHP and MySQL.

We are developing a desktop application for a customer (VS 2003). The customer wants us to retrieve the Windows logon information from Active Directory, then ask the user to verify his password and then assure that this password is the same as the one given when doing Windows logon. This must be done before starting the app. I wonder: whats the best way to accomplish this? Thanks!

Hi I have several web forms that require users verification by entering a code before they are allowed in. I have created a separate web form for entering and verifying user code.
