Hello,

During a rollout of SP2 we are moving everyone into a new OU (sp2liveou). When testing the code it works fine for me and happily moves machines about as I have the rights to do that.. However, the 12,000 users don't. Can anyone tell me how to change my fairly simple script to use a specific domain account we already have to do the move on the users computer. The script is in VBscript and is currently using a .movehere to move the computer account. I am looking for a kind of impersonation for ldap if that (or any of this ramble) makes sense.

Many thanks,

Jamie.

Youn can always use the RUNAS command.  Here's a link to more details.

If you want to do it all from inside VB, to hide the password, then here's another possibility.  See the accepted answer.

Thanks a lot fot the links BlueDevilFan, iif all else fails I will use the RUNAS command, but as the whole thing is running from inside an MSI I would prefer to do the whole lot in the script. Is there anyway to attach an username/password to an LDAP string or something similar in VB?

Cheers,
Jamie.

This works for me.  

Set DSO = CreateObject("DSOleFile.PropertyReader")
Set Props = DSO.GetDocumentProperties(FileName)

You then get the properties by referencing Props.PropertyName
