Just came from the Windows2003 section and it seems that there is nothing usefull to accompligh the job without creating a custom prgram.

So, I need code snippet to help me get on track faster than on my own.
I know that there is a directory class library in the framework.
It would be helpfull to get input from someone who had to use it.

Thank.

What exactly are you trying to do?

   Here is an example on how to use system.directoryservices to create a user

using System;
using System.DirectoryServices;

namespace ADAM_Examples
{
    class CreateUser
    {
        /// <summary>
        /// Create ADAM User.
        /// </summary>
        [STAThread]
        static void Main()
        {
            DirectoryEntry objADAM;       // Binding object.
            DirectoryEntry objUser;       // User object.
            string strDisplayName;        // Display name of user.
            string strPath;               // Binding path.
            string strUser;               // User to create.
            string strUserPrincipalName;  // Principal name of user.

            // Construct the binding string.
            strPath = "LDAP://localhost:389/O=Fabrikam,C=US";

            Console.WriteLine("Bind to: {0}", strPath);

            // Get ADAM object.
            try
            {
                objADAM = new DirectoryEntry(strPath);
                objADAM.RefreshCache();
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Error:   Bind failed.");
                Console.WriteLine("         {0}", e.Message);
                return;
            }

            // Specify User.
            strUser = "CN=TestUser";
            strDisplayName = "Test User";
            strUserPrincipalName = "TestUser@Fabrikam.Us";
            Console.WriteLine("Create:  {0}", strUser);

            // Create User.
            try
            {
                objUser = objADAM.Children.Add(strUser, "user");
                objUser.Properties["displayName"].Add(strDisplayName);
                objUser.Properties[
                    "userPrincipalName"].Add(strUserPrincipalName);
                objUser.CommitChanges();
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Error:   Create failed.");
                Console.WriteLine("         {0}", e.Message);
                return;
            }

            // Output User attributes.
            Console.WriteLine("Success: Create succeeded.");
            Console.WriteLine("Name:    {0}", objUser.Name);
            Console.WriteLine("         {0}",
                objUser.Properties["displayName"].Value);
            Console.WriteLine("         {0}",
                objUser.Properties["userPrincipalName"].Value);
            return;
        }
    }
}

I suggest getting the LDP.exe utiltiy from the windows 2003 server support tools to checkout what properties you can modify.

I hop this helps.

Thanks
