I need to give my application an OU in AD and have it list the OU contained in it, and then the CN contained in each of those.  I can get the properties I need once I get to the last group, but for some reason I can't list a group of OU's contained in another OU.  How can I setup an AD search with vb.net to give it an OU and have it list all the OU contained inside of it?

Quite simply:
Module Module1
	Sub Main()
		Using searcher As New DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher("(&(objectCategory=organizationalUnit))")
			For Each ou As DirectoryServices.SearchResult In searcher.FindAll()
				Console.WriteLine(ou.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("name").Value.ToString())
			Next
		End Using
		Console.ReadLine()
	End Sub
End Module

Open in new window
