Active Directory LDP.exe - Is it possible to query for a user account object by using UID instead of CN? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to successfully query for a user account object by UID using LDP.exe on a domain controller?

    I need to be able to run a query using LDP.exe, on a domain controller, and successfully get a return for that object. What do I need to do to be able to use UID instead of CN when typing the DN of the object in the BaseDN field in LDP? 

    The UID attribute is available in AD why can't I not search for an object with it using LDP? Would I need to change the schema in AD? 

    Thanks!

  • After several attempts I was able to search for a user object by adding changing the default filter.

    (&(objectClass=user)(uid=uidNAME))
