Where can I find all Active Directory attributes?

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I've been looking for a while and have only found a few websites that have maybe 10 or so attribute names for Active Directory/LDAP.

I finally found this one "http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms675090(v=VS.85).aspx" but howcome I don't see "distinguishedName" on that list?

In Active Directory Explorer by SysInternals, I can see hundreds of Attributes in the search box, for the "User -- user" class, for example, but cannot find a website that has all of these listed.

Or is there a way to view all of them from PowerShell or Quest ActiveRoles' powershell?
