I created a linked server to Active Directory in SQL Server 2008.  I am getting the attached error.  Scripted linked server:

EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedserver @server = N'ADSI', @srvproduct=N'Active Directory Service Interfaces', @provider=N'ADSDSOObject', @datasrc=N'adsdatasource'

EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlinkedsrvlogin @rmtsrvname=N'ADSI',@useself=N'False',@locallogin=NULL,@rmtuser=N'my_username',@rmtpassword='########'

Ideas?

Figured it out.  Query needs to be as below:


SELECT *
FROM OpenQuery(ADSI, 'SELECT title, displayName, sAMAccountName, givenName, telephoneNumber, facsimileTelephoneNumber, sn FROM ''LDAP://DC=sub-domain,DC=company,DC=com'' WHERE objectCategory=''user'' ')

If I work at MyStuff.com then the query would be:

SELECT * FROM OpenQuery(... FROM ''LDAP://DC=MyStuff,DC=COM''...

There is a "DC" to separate each part of the domain name.

If my domain = SomeAgency.ky.gov then the query would be:

SELECT * FROM OpenQuery(... FROM "LDAP://DC=SomeAgency,DC=KY,DC=gov''...
