Are you asking for the LDAP path for the user?

"LDAP://cn=shiva,ou=test users,dc=test,dc=com"

Samaccountname if you are just thinking of username

or userprincipalname if users are using the username@domain.com   type login

good page that shows the attribute names behind the GUI here   http://www.selfadsi.org/user-attributes-w2k3.htm

Thanks

I Know what I ask sounds simple but I am trying to set up printer to use AD authentication. Unfortunately the account names must be added manaully in the printer interface, but it will then check these against AD and authenticate the password.

The problem is when adding the account to the printer, it is searching the cn, common name, which isn't the log on name. The cn attribute is returning full names.

I tried using uid but that doesn't do anything.

Another problem. The structure of Active Directory reflects our organisations structure. This means that some we have OUs within OUs. However, the LDAP function of the Printer I am configuring (SHARP MX2600) will only pull names out of the first two levels. For example, the following will pul users out of OUs with the Domain_Users OU:

OU=Domain_Users,DC=domain,DC=local

However, this next one doesn't work at all. It should return user names from OUs in the YHS OU. Which it doesn't:

OU=YHS,OU=Students_and_Guests,OU=Domain_Users,DC=d omain,DC=local

Is this a limitation of the Sharp Software system, or am I missing something?
