  • Here is a sample code. It uses objects from System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement namespace. There's quite a lot of other useful components inside System.DirectoryService namespace also.

    using (var ctx = new PrincipalContext(ContextType.Domain, "widgets.local")) { using (var search = new PrincipalSearcher(new UserPrincipal(ctx))) { foreach (var result in search.FindAll()) { DirectoryEntry de = result.GetUnderlyingObject() as DirectoryEntry; Console.WriteLine("Given Name: " + de.Properties["givenName"].Value); Console.WriteLine("Last Name : " + de.Properties["sn"].Value); Console.WriteLine("SAM account name : " + de.Properties["samAccountName"].Value); Console.WriteLine("User principal name: " + de.Properties["userPrincipalName"].Value); Console.WriteLine(); } } } Console.ReadLine();
