Hi
I have an already created VB application where when the user tries to execute it , he needs to login into the application and it checks from the active directory if the user is a valid user or not
and accordingly displays the message . Now what the issue is so far they were using a domain and they want to change it to another domain that is the first change to be made
The next change would be there were 3 groups earlier in the existing application and they changed those groups too ... now the issue I have here is for the newly created groups they added my name into those 3 groups (user group, supervisor grooup and admin group) but still I am not able to login to application . As I am not so sure about the active directory (LDAP) so I am not sure where it is going wrong. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated. Do I need to check anything else apart from this ..! Please let me know!

Thanks
Radhs

Look at the path the code is calling into LDAP.
You mentioned the domain changed, so you will need to modify that to get the proper tracking to the LDAP groups.

Next you will need to find where the code is checking group memberships. You will need to alter that as well.

If this is to occur or changes might happen again, I would add items to the config file such as the domain name and valid group names, that the application could use to facilitate authorization checking. From then on, you wouldn't need to change code, but only the config file.
