Is their something like a "fully qualified domain name" for active directory objects.  

I need to add a domain account to a local group and have to point to that particular account.

How can I easely retrieve the "full name" of the object ?

Hi itbabe,
the syntax is the following:"CN=Username,OU=name of his/her OU, OU=parent ou,OU=....,DC=yourDOMAINName,DC=yourDOMAINsuffix"

Dear itbabe,
Your Domain DNS name normally will be your Fully qualified domain name. When you have created your AD Domain you would have given like xx.com or something like that. XX.com is called fully qualified domain name.user@xx.com you can use to add in the local group.

Cheers!

Inbarasan, I believe he is not talking about "FQDN", which is used in DNS, but about the LDAP "Distinguished Name", used in Active Directory.

Anyway, the DNS domain name is the same appearing under "DC" in LDAP path (DC stands for Domain Component).

You could use ADSI Edit.

Make sure you are logged on to the domain.

Here's the full explanation ( with download link ).
