An enquiry if a normal user account without any administrator access to the domain can query the domain and get all user attributes to a excel file. In summary, can a normal user account without admin access do this job?

Yep, if they have adminpak installed in there system, it can be done.

If not, not possible.

AD have read access for all users.

ADMINPAK is mandatory to do so...!

Hi,

This dont need any documentation.

Its a smandatory thing, for any query if end user or IT person to have in AD, they need ADMINPAK to be installed.

Note: i am telling this for client OS. this will not applicatble for server OS. since it will be inbuilt in that.

Well i need to verify this in documentation as a vendor requires to query the domain using LDAP. We cannot give them more than administrator rights for the user account. Using a non administrative domain user account can this account query the AD and get user attributes? If it cannot, than require to support this with documentation, thank you.

To Query AD, Admin rights not required. Adminpak installed system is the requirement and the user account should be the domain user.

Bydefault AD give read access to domain users.

I searched for the document if any, but sorry i unable to pull from internet.

Prem

Alternately, you could use Joeware's ADFind tool - ADFind.  This may give you a little more flexibility to accomplish what you are trying to do.
