Hi, I am trying to pull AD data into SQL and I've got everything working except for the employeeID attribute.  I can't get the employeeid values to populate into SQL.  Does anyone have any ideas on why this is not working?  I have attached my code.
SELECT     TOP (100) PERCENT displayName, mobile, facsimiletelephoneNumber, telephoneNumber, mail, department, physicalDeliveryOfficeName, title, givenName, 
                      employeeid
FROM         OPENQUERY(AD, 
                      '
select  givenName,title,
    physicalDeliveryOfficeName,
    department, mail,
    telephoneNumber,  facsimiletelephoneNumber,
    mobile, 
    displayName, employeeid
    
from    ''LDAP://ausdc2:3268/ OU=Dynamic Systems,  DC=fgi_main,DC=local''
where objectCategory = ''Person''  
        and  
         objectClass = ''user'' 

')
                       AS Rowset_1
WHERE     (givenName IS NOT NULL)
ORDER BY displayName

do you have employeeid in LDAP?

do you have any other tool to query LDAP, and from that tool, do you get employeeid?

I don't know. I don't deal with the AD side at all; only SQL.

My AD guy was able to query the employeeid using another tool and the data is there.

Try ldp.exe to query AD. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224543

If you google it you should find the download somewhere. Run it from your desktop and connect with your AD account and you should have rights to browse the AD tree. There may be more than one piece of data stored in the employeeid field and using ldp.exe will tell you what is in there. In general LDAP is case sensitive and you also need the full DN which can be hard to get sometimes.

Not sure from the SQL side but the user making the LDAP call also needs read rights to AD. Would you get an error if the authentication failed?

I'm doubtful that it is permissions as I am able to pull other AD attributes.

Is employeeid in the same container (CN)and at the same level as the others?

displayName, mobile, facsimiletelephoneNumber, telephoneNumber, mail, department, physicalDeliveryOfficeName, title, givenName

Turns out that by changing the port number used in the connection to the domain controller server solved the problem.
