I am trying to take the following query which is working  in an old vb6 application:

"Select Adspath from 'LDAP://domain/DC=domain,DC=com' where samAccountName='ADGROUP1'"

and get it to take into account multiple AD Group entries like this:

" Select Adspath from 'LDAP://domain/DC=domain,DC=com' where samAccountName='ADGROUP1' or samAccountName='ADGROUP2'"

I've tried multiple syntax changes using what I've seen to be LDAP query methodology; but have been unsuccessful.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hey,

You might have more luck with a traditional LDAP filter:

(|(sAMAccountName=ADGroup1)(sAMAccountName=ADGroup2))

Where | represents the Or.

Or is that something you've already tried?

Would that look like  :

 Select Adspath from 'LDAP://domain/DC=domain,DC=com' where (|(sAMAccountName=ADGroup1)(sAMAccountName=ADGroup2))

I tried that syntax with no luck.
Thank you for your help; I'm not accustomed to writing LDAP queries;

I ended up just making two passes to the ldap for each condition in the 'or' statement. Thanks for everyones help.
