Cross Domain AD query RRS feed

  • Question

  • User2043281626 posted


    I am writing a custom .NET 4.0 solution that will replace a dependency my team has on DSML. Essentially I will have a WCF service that will be called with some criteria to search through active directory (AD) and return the values back to the component who called the service. The issue is I am not sure how to go about this through the use of LDAP. The only experience I have will LDAP is validating perhaps a user's credentials, but that was in the same domain. This case is different. So I guess one of my questions is if this is even practical? If it is, are there any examples available of doing a secure LDAP connection to from domain then to another domain's AD? Are there any known "issues" I should be aware of before I start developing essentially?

    Any help with this topic will be greatly appreciated!
