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()

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"

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?

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")
