Active Directory Question RRS feed

    Dear all,


    Firstly, my apologies if this is in the wrong forum, I looked through the list and this seemed to be the one that was the best "fit" for my query...

    I am working on a project where I access our Active Directory at work.  I am replicating some software that was "bought-in".  Our domain name, fully qualified, is "ubht.nhs.uk", yet when we log in to our PC's, it appears as "UBHT_NT" - I've queried this with a member of our operations team today to try and understand why etc...

    He explained to me that "UBHT_NT" was the name of our old NT4 domain, and that its managed through the PDC Emulator in Active Directory.  At this point I realised I was getting out of my depth...

    However, I currently have the value "UBHT_NT" wired up in my web.config file as I need to reference it in my project, what I would prefer to do is actually get this value from the Active Directory directly, just like I get a user profile for example.

    Does anyone know how I might go about this?

    For reference, my only real experience with the Active Directory thus far is querying it with a samaccount and getting a user profile out for updating on a web page etc.. I have little/no knowledge futher than that or indeed with regards to the PDC Emulator.

    Thanks in advance for any help..
