GetObject(x) - GET/PUT RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1217975830 posted

    We have extended our AD schema with some additional properties.

    I am having an "issue" with accessing one of them.

    Tried: Dim objUser As Object
    and: Dim objUser As ActiveDs.IADsUser

    objUser = GetObject(tmpADsPath)  ' using LDAP

    Tried "getting" into:
    Dim WrkInt64 As System.Int64
    and Dim WrkUInt64 As System.UInt64
    and Dim WrkDtTm As DateTime

    I need to read/get the current/old value:
    Tried: Wrkxxxxxx = objUser.Get("customProp")
    and: objUser.GetEx("customProp")

    But either get "can't convert _comobject to xxxxxx" error
    or a zero value

    I can set/update the property fine with:

    WrkInt64 = System.Convert.ToInt64(DDCDte.SelectedDate.ToFileTime)
    objUser.Put("customProp", "" & WrkInt64 & "")

    Using ADSI edit, can see the correct values have been set.

    Also, the "objUser.Get("userAccountControl")" works fine.

    What am I missing for the "Get" of the customProp ???

    (This also brings up another Q...on this PUT I have to do ""& xxxx &""
     for it to work(force quotes). But on a couple of the "normal" properties,
     I can just do the variable(no quotes))

    Heres some additional information:

    The property I'm having the problem with is defined as:
    Name: Large Integer/Interval (INTEGER8)
    oMSyntax: 65
    Description: 64-bit integer
    Used for properties: accountExpires, lastLogon, maxPwdAge, uSNCreated, uSNChanged

    Did additional testing:
    works OK- objUser.AccountExpirationDate  -(so the builtin method converts properly)
    returns zero- objUser.Get("accountExpires")
    returns zero- objUser.Get("customProp")

    works OK- objUser.Get("userAccountControl")
    Which is defined as:
    Name: Integer (Integer)
    oMSyntax: 2
    Description: 32-bit integer
    Used for properties: userAccountControl, flags, groupType, primaryGroupID, rangeLower, rangeUpper


    Did up an additional small test app using AD.Searcher and
    I get back/can access the correct values.

    So I don't think theres anything wrong with my property.
    Something to do with using objUser.Get(x) and the "Large Integer/Interval" format.

    Anyone have anything for a fix?

    or I have to rewrite using Searcher?
    Then would like assistance on how to change & save back to AD.

    Did you find a solution for this?

    Is that all the code you are using?
