Hi experts.

I'm trying to get the atrribute "lastLogonTimestamp" and it is a date from activedirectory by using SQL syntax. The date is a largeinteger datatype.

I do not know how to get the data from AD into something useful.

I have tried to do this:

var
bigint : int64

begin
  try
    ADOQuery4.SQL.Clear;
    ADOQuery4.SQL.Text := 'SELECT operatingSystem, lastLogonTimestamp FROM '+ Quotedstr('LDAP://OU=COMPUTERS,OU='+copy(ComputerNavn,3,2)+',OU='+copy(ComputerNavn,1,2)+',OU=FIRM,DC=AD,DC=FIRM,DC=ORG') + ' WHERE cn = '+ QuotedStr(ComputerNavn);
    ADOQuery4.Open;
    bigint := ADOQuery4.FieldByName('lastLogonTimestamp').AsLargeInt;
  finally
    ADOQuery4.Close;
  end;
end;

Open in new window


but I get this error:


'Could not convert variant of type (Dispatch) into type (Boolean)'

Funny that I could not find that myself, but thank you for the link.

But as it is now, I have already some SQL calls to Active Directory. I would like to keep it that way. I do not like to mix things. I do not hope that will be any problem. :)

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
