Programming Active Directory with VB.NET

P: n/a
Hello there,

I was wondering if any one knows some good source, book, or even MSDN
resurce (I found something there, but seems to be very little) that instructs
how to create in VB.NET programs for Active Directory (adding user, creating
folder, changing permissions, creating exchange mailboxes).

I have done some user, home folder, mailbox creation in VBScript, but now I
am planning to do a GUI program in VB.NET that does basically the same thing.

I would really appreciate any direction.

Thank you very much

Gentian,

Your keyword for searching is "LDAP".

Here some in general, not dotNet
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...dingADApps.asp

And this with VBNet

I hope this helps?

You might want to check out the following book:

Unfortunately the information on working with System.DirectoryServices (or Active Directory) is
rather scattered, given the number of different mechanisms available to do what you describe.
