LogonUser API

P: n/a
Hi,

I am with a doubt / problem here. The case is the following:

I have a service in C++ and this service uses API LogonUser directly to do
users' validation in the domain through a request of an application customer
in VB. What is happening now is that we will make a migration of Windows NT
4.0 Enterprise for Windows Server 2003, always in cluster. The one that
happens is that to have a cluster in Windows 2003 I have to use
ActiveDirectory, and there enters my doubt: Will API LogonUser continue to
work validating the user in AD? Or will I have to use other API's regarding
LDAP to do the same function?

Hi Fabiano,

The LogonUser API will still validate a username and password on the domain
server. However, because you are running Active Directory, there are a host
of new interfaces you can use to search the directory and view/edit object
properties (e.g. last time user changed password, password has expired,
password must be changed at next logon)

These are accessible through the Directory Services API.
