LDAP://rootDSE in ASP?

can anyone explain why the following asp page doesn't work? It stops on line 9 saying  error (0x8007054B). line 9 is Set objDSE = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE").


<form method="POST">
<select size="1" name="D1">

Dim rstUsers
Dim objDSE, strNamingContext
Set objDSE = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE")
strNamingContext = objDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
Set objDSE = Nothing
set rstUsers= CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rstUsers.Open "SELECT sAMAccountName,physicalDeliveryOfficeName FROM 'LDAP://CN=Users," & strNamingContext  & "' WHERE objectClass='user' ORDER BY sAMAccountName", "Provider=ADsDSOObject"
While Not rstUsers.EOF
response.write "<option>" & rstUsers("sAMAccountName").Value & "</option>"
Set rstUsers = Nothing

Looks like a permissions things that the IUSR_machinename account does not have priveleges to create the LDAP object.....
You will find that you can bind to

Set objDSE = GetObject("LDAP:")


Set objDSE = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE")
