Access Active Directory From Outside Domain
Posted on 2007-11-28
Hi guys and gals,
I have an ASP.NET app that successfully reads the users in an Active Directory on our domain controller when run locally (through Visual Studio), but cannot access the AD from the web server.
My local machine is part of the domain that holds the AD, while the web server is not part of that domain. Is that why a script running on the web server throws a "Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password" error?
Is it possible for a machine that is not part of the domain to "read" the Active Directory?
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
