Adding a user to an ActiveDirectory security group via ASP.NET(VB) page

I'm trying to add a user to a security group using the code below. I am continuing to get the error:

"The server is unwilling to process the request. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80072035)"

on the CommitChanges line. Any ideas??


Dim group As New DirectoryEntry("LDAP://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/CN=ussrm-users,OU=Security Groups,OU=Groups,OU=xyz,OU=abc,OU=AMR,OU=myou,DC=mycorp,DC=org")
group.Properties("member").Add("LDAP://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/sAMAccountName=myuser1,OU=Pending Users,OU=Users,OU=xyz,OU=abc,OU=AMR,OU=myou,DC=mycorp,DC=org")
group.CommitChanges()

Use the distinguished name of the user you want to add.

group.Properties("member").Add("CN=myuser1,OU=Pending Users,OU=Users,OU=xyz,OU=abc,OU=AMR,OU=myou,DC=mycorp,DC=org")

The member attribute doesn't take an ADsPath. Remove the LDAP:// and it should be fine.

BTW, 0x80072035 means  "The  server is unwilling to process the request"

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I have tried each of the following to no avail:


group.Properties("member").Add("xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/sAMAccountName=userID")
group.Properties("member").Add("sAMAccountName=userID")
group.Properties("member").Add("CN=LastName\, FirstName")
group.Properties("member").Add("10.208.251.125/CN=LastName\, FirstName")
group.Properties("member").Add("LastName, FirstName")

Our format for CN is LastName, FirstName and for sAMAccount its just the network logon. What is the property I should be using here?
