Hello,

I have a perl script that uses Net::LDAP to query AD. It works correctly, but I can't get more than 1000 results back. I see that there are solutions posted for VBscript but how about perl? I've seen about Net::LDAP::Control::Paged, and I'm able to bring back the amount I specify up to 1000. Does anyone have an example of looping through and getting all records?

Thanks for any help!

According to the Net::LDAP docs, the search parameter sizelimit => N should return all results, but it also says the queried server may limit it anyway.

Try adding this to the search parameters to see if it makes any difference.

Your comment was correct, thank you. Though, it turns out I had a mistake in not including

use Net::LDAP::Constant qw( LDAP_CONTROL_PAGED );

After I added that line, it pages completely through correctly. I didn't realize that line was necessary.

Thanks for your help.
