NTAccount.Trans late to SecurityIdentif ier for <domain>\Admini strat

Hi!
Can anyone please explain me why following code gives an SecurityExcepti on
"System.Securit y.SecurityExcep tion: The name provided is not a properly
formed account name."?

-- code start --

System.Security .Principal.NTAc count ntAccount = new
System.Security .Principal.NTAc count(@"<domain >\Administrator s");
System.Security .Principal.Secu rityIdentifier sid =
(System.Securit y.Principal.Sec urityIdentifier )ntAccount.Tran slate(typeof(Sy stem.Security.P rincipal.Securi tyIdentifier));

-- code end --

where "<domain>" in "<domain>\Admin istrators" is your Active Directory Domain.

Note:
<domain>\Admini strators is a built-In group. It is visible trough 'Find'
dialog in Active Directory Users and Computers Snap-In.

Just thought None as the first argument would be both handy and mnemonic, signifying no translation, but allowing easy expression of deleting characters, e.g., s = s.translate(None, 'badcharshere') Regards, Bengt Richter

I'm sure this is a stretch, but is there some kind of component that I could install to translate from English to Spanish on the fly? I have a lot of equipment features and specifications that I could manually translate, but that's labor intensive. I know there are services were I can paste a URL and it will translate the page, but I don't want to send users away from the site, unless I could do so transparently. Does anyone else have...

Hello group I'm trying to list the users and groups who has read access to a file. I use .NET 2.0 and FileInfo.GetAccessControl().GetAccessRules(...) and then loop through the FileSystemAccessRule objects. Using these objects, it is easy to use rule.IdentityReference.Translate(typeof(NTAccount)) to get the NTAccount object. I have noticed that some of the NTAccounts can belong to BUILTIN domains,

Hi, I wanted a reliable way of detecting if a given NTAccount object represents a user account or group account. I was using SecurityIdentifier.IsAccountSid() method but this doesn't work as I expected. It returns true for user accounts and also for groups created by administrator. Right now I am using the WMI class System.Management.ManagementClass to get a list of all local user accounts and am iterating over them to see if the given...
