I would like to know if it's possible to retrieve an hashed password from ADAM with Python?

I've seen that DSInternals could allow that, but wouldn't work with ADAM.  Plus we don't need the password in clear text, just the hashed version.

(Using Windows Server 2012 R2, ADAM, Python 3.7)

DSInternals in opensource so you can certainly look at the code and possibly engineer it to work with ADAM (AD-LDS)


I believe that any open source could be engineered to do anything you want, but i'm thinking of an existing solution.
