windows2003 active directory problems

P: n/a
Hi people. I have a problem adding users to Win2003 active directory
programatically. When I execute my app throws the following exception:

.................The specified directory service attribute or value does not
exist...........

Exactly the same code works fine on my win2000 active directory. My app
include the use of the extensionAtributes and I'm not sure if the
extensionAttributes feature was removed from win2003 Active Directory
Any Idea

You may want to identify what attributes you are referring to (code?). I'm assuming you're using
either ADSI or System.DirectoryServices?

These are exchange extension attributes, did you migrate a W2K AD to W2K3 AD
or did you upgrade an existing W2K AD domain?
If not, did you migrate Exchange to the new domain, else these attributes
don't exist in the user schema. You can check your schema using adsiedit.msc

Anyway rest assured these attributes still exist, and your problem is not
..NET related.

You are right Willy. In fact, I've two test environments:

1- Win2000, Exchange installed - everything works fine
2- Win2003, without Exchange - tests fails

I just create manually all the extensionAttributeN in win2003 (using the
same data than un Win2000)

but now if I include some extensionAttribute on my addUser method throws an
exception (If I don't include any extensionAttribute everything works fine)

Exception: The requested operation did not satisfy one or more constraints
associated with the class of the object.

Can you try adding one extension attribute at a time until you trigger the error? This will allow
you identify the attribute in question (if it isn't all of them).

The error seems to indicate that there is a configuration or data related issue. It could be a data
validation issue or possibly a relationship between attributes that is being violated.
