Hi all,

I want to update openldap directory from c#. I used following code for make Directory entry as below.

public static DirectoryEntry GetDirectoryEntry()
DirectoryEntry de = new DirectoryEntry();
de.Path = "LDAP://,DC=example,DC=com";
de.AuthenticationType = AuthenticationTypes.ServerBind;

return de;

I thought it is working properly. But my user update mathod does not work properly.It is as below,

public void ModifyUser(string userDisplayName, string username, string password)
DirectoryEntry de = GetDirectoryEntry();
de.Username = username;
de.Password = password;

DirectorySearcher ds = new DirectorySearcher(de);
ds.Filter = ("((objectclass=user)(uid=" + username+ "))");

ds.SearchScope = SearchScope.Subtree;

SearchResult results = ds.FindOne();

if (results != null)
DirectoryEntry updateEntry = results.GetDirectoryEntry();
updateEntry.Properties["password"].Value =password;
catch (Exception ex)
txt1.Text = ex.ToString();


It gives error as an invalid dn syntax.

Please anyone know about this please help me as soon as possible.
