Python-ldap, ADSI Edit - Find department attribute

I'm using python-ldap trying to find department of users based on the uid. However, I was not able to get any results with a filter like: '(&(objectClass=user)(anr="<user_id>"))'. I was able to pull department attribute using .net with the above syntax. I tried using ADSI Edit but could not find any department attributes either. Am I searching the wrong Naming Context? The available Naming Context in ADSI Edit were: Configuration, RootDSE, and Schema. None seemed to show department attributes.

Thanks!

Look in the default naming context (it's called "Domain" on my DC, but I think I actually named it that).  That's where I found it in ADSI Edit.

I believe the problem was the Python-ldap module. I ended up using CSVDE to get the department property.
