Hello, we have a server:

WRINTMAIL (windows 2003, active directory etc) I've been told I can use LDAP queries by connecting to this server, but if i got to the server and do:

LDAP://LOCALHOST/

It comes up with a search box, but anything i search returns an error (the specified directory service could not be reached).

My domain is: WRSTAFF.LOCAL
admin login is: administrator
password is: password (for arguements sake)

Any ideas?

Hi,

you have to start a command prompt (as an administrator)
type in ldp in the bos
click on file (or something equal) and choose connect.
type in the DC's name and voila.

Moer info is on MS Document:

Good luck

hi,

Check the dns settings of the servers and Dc's
you can try to run ipconfig /flushdns and trhe ipconfig /registerdns after you have checked the DNS settings

Also check the domain DNS. can you ping the domain??

good luck

Hi there,

I found the problem - the exchange server isn't a domian controller - I've connected to our domain controller:

WRINTDC

and it shows a nice long message to say it is connected... but I'm not sure where to go from here to write ldap queries etc...

I'd like to start with something basic, such as a list of usernames & full name - I just don't know how to go about it.

Many thanks!
