Question about validating an ASP.NET 2.0 site to Active Directory
Posted on 2006-06-01
I have created a test site in ASP.NET 2.0 and actually gotten the Active Directory authentication to work correctly. So when I put in my Active Directory username and password into my login control, it authenticates fine and brings me to the LoggedIn Template. That's great, I'm glad that was fairly straight-forward. My question is can I gather any other info about the logged in user from AD? I would love to be able to use the DisplayName property from AD that goes with the logged in username. Is this possible? And if it is possible, could someone give me some direction as to how to do it?
