How to query LDAP(Microsoft Active Directory Services) from IBM db2 UDB

I found the following code to use SQL Server 2005 to query information in my Active Directory structure:

Found at: http://www.bravesoft.com/blog/?p=24 

EXEC sp_addlinkedserver 'ADSI', 'Active Directory Services 2.5',ADSDSOObject', 'adsdatasource'
....
EXEC master..xp_sprintf @cmdstr OUTPUT, 'SELECT mail, employeeID, displayname, distinguishedName FROM OPENQUERY( ADSI, ''SELECT distinguishedName, displayname, employeeID, mail FROM ''''LDAP://DC=mycompany, DC=int''''WHERE objectCategory = ''''Person'''' AND SAMAccountName = ''''%s*'''''' )'

Open in new window


This code works from SQLServer2005, but can someone point me to an equivalent method from a IBM db2 UDB database?

My goal is to (at a minimum) compare data from my H.R. system to the user attributes in Active Directory. If I can query AD and place the results in a table on my db2 box, I can accomplish this.

Thanks in advance.

db2 does not have a built in interface to active directory like sql server has
you will have to write a user defined function that does that
