I will ask this in three or four questions as I'll probably need help with each bit of the process. (more points! yeah!!)
Firstly, I have a web application that is currently set up on my localhost. It uses the SQLExpress to connect to my data.
My workmates can view my Applicaton on http://webdev/
(MY COMPUTER NAME ON THE NETWORK)
My files are in the shared INETPUB/WWW directory and rather than creating a separate database with userName, userEmail etc. I want to connect to the Active Directory.
My first question is "Can I Do It?"
Second, can I do this with out installing something like ADAM on my computer.
I want to connect to the AD then query and return the ActiveDirectoryMembershipU
ser, and use that info in my application.
I looked up LDAP connections but the only one I understood was one that created a custom provider and then used the ADAM program to create an "Active Directory Like" database. (I don't want to create another database, I want to use the existing Active Directory)
If I can do this... how do I do it?
Links to info also appreciated.
