Troubleshooting LDAP query tool
Posted on 2009-04-23
My domain is emea.kam.com, within the kam.com forest. We have another domain name us.kam.com
There is a universal security group that a department wants to get membership for repeatedly. One of their vendors has provided them with a tool to do this.
Unfortunately, the tool doesn't pull all the members from us.kam.com out for some reason.
The search root is: dc=kam, dc=com
LDAP server: ukgc1
If I use the same settings on the another LDAP query tool (the brilliant Quest Powershell tool) then it works fine, so it's defo a problem with the original tool (Tool1).
One thing I notice on Tool1 is that I can view the search query 'area'...i.e. if I enter a DC, it bring ups up the DC graphically and it's OU's (as you see in ADUC)....however, the Naming Context is dc=emea., dc=kam, dc=com even though I am selecting the search root at the forest root. Is this to be expected?
Also, there is a drop down menu by the DC icon, and I can see, cn=configuration and cn=schema.
Should I be expecting to see cn=domain as well?
Just trying to figure out where the problem with Tool1 is!
Thanks for any help in advance!
