Show Users In Active Directory Error Message

Why am I getting an exception error when trying to show all users in active directory. What does this mean?

Additional information: The server is not operational.

Using Active Directory To Authenticate Users In WWW Facing Website

Mar 13, 2010

I'm looking at starting a new web app which needs to be secure (if for no other reason than that we'll need PCI (Payment Card Industry) accreditation at some point). From previous experience working with PCI (on a domain), the preferred method is to use integrated windows authentication which is then passed all the way through the app to the database using kerberos (so the NT user has permissions in the DB). This allows for better auditing as well as object-level permissions (ie an end user can't read the credit card table). There are advantages in that even if someone compromises the webserver, they won't be able to glean any/much additional information from the database. Also, the webserver isn't storing any database credentials (beyond perhaps a simple anonymous user with very few permissions for simple website config)

So, now I'm looking at the new web app which will be on the public internet. One suggestion is to have a Active Directory server and create windows accounts on the AD for each user of the site. These users will then be placed into the appropriate NT groups to decide which DB permissions they should have (and which pages they can access). ASP.Net already provides the AD membership provider and role provider so this should be fairly simple to implement. There are a number of questions around this - Scalability, reliability, etc... and I was wondering if there is anyone out there with experience of this approach or, even better, some good reasons why to do it / not to do it.

Active Directory/LDAP :: Get The List Of Users From Other Domain

Aug 4, 2010

I need to get the list of domain usrs. The users not necessorily be on the domain where I am logged in. (e.g. I am logged in on domain "Dom111" but I need the list of users from the domain "Dom222")

I want this information on the basis of following -
1) Name of the Domain
2) A valid User name (of-course with Admin rights for the Target domain) and password

I am trying to use the following code -

DirectoryContext dc = new DirectoryContext(DirectoryContextType.Domain, "Dom222", "Administrator", "password");
Domain domain = Domain.GetDomain(dc);
DirectoryEntry de = domain.GetDirectoryEntry();

Here is the FillList function
private void FillList(DirectoryEntry de)
DirectorySearcher deSearch = new DirectorySearcher(de);
deSearch.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(objectCategory=person))";
SearchResultCollection results = deSearch.FindAll();
foreach (SearchResult srUser in results)
DirectoryEntry deUser = srUser.GetDirectoryEntry();
checkedListBox1.Sorted = true;

This works fine for the domain where I logged in (i.e. Dom111) but for the other domain (Dom222), while executing the statement - Domain domain = Domain.GetDomain(dc); I am getting the error saying "The specified domain does not exist or cannot be contacted."

Now, For creating the dc if I use following - DirectoryContext dcTemp = new DirectoryContext(DirectoryContextType.DirectoryServer, "Server_dom222", "administrator", "password");
Then everything works fine. But as you can see I need to pass the "Domain Controller (Server) Name"which I want to avoid.

Security :: Authenticating Internal Users Against Active Directory?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a (3.5) web-app that will be used in an intranet. I need to enforce that users type in their network credentials (windows credentials) before they can log into this application. I intentionally need to disallow Integrated Windows Authentication. I need to authenticate these users against my company's Active Directory, that is obviously on the same network as my .net web app.

I have been reading a bit about Forms Authentication using ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider - [URL]. I also stumbled upon this - [URL]. Based on what I can tell, both seem to do what I need to get done. Could somebody tell me what are the major differences, pros/cons and when you would use which method? Or are these exactly identical, and both achieve the exact same results?

From the security perspective...what do I need to watch for? I am assuming if I use SSL that will cover me for when I pass the username/pwd to AD for verification?

Active Directory/LDAP :: Retrieve All Users And Their OrganizationalUnit?

Jan 18, 2011

I'm new to directoryServices and im trying to capture all users in the active directory and their organizational units but i'm having abit of trouble here, i've been reading through the forums and searching online but can't seem to find information that is viable to me.

Here is brief overview of what im trying to do. Im trying to create a datatable where i can insert all the usernames and their ou by capturing the values from the AD but i keep getting alot of duplicated usernames BUT in different organizationalUnits. I've checked the AD, and they do not belong so the following are my codes, but i can't seem to figure out what is wrong.

private static DataTable retrieveUsers(string domain, DataTable dt)
DirectoryEntry dEntry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + domain);
DirectorySearcher dSearch = new DirectorySearcher(dEntry);
SearchResultCollection sResultcol;

Authenticate Users Using DotNetOpenAuth With An Active Directory Provider?

Dec 4, 2010

I am trying to integrate authentication for a cloud-based application with an Active Directory forest behind my cilent's firewall.

I am a Python developer from the open-source world... needless to say, .NET is not my forte and I'm not familiar with authentication technologies provided by IIS/WIF/etc.

I have installed DotNetOpenAuth and gotten the sample MVC OpenID provider working with the included ReadOnlyXmlMembershipProvider.

I have scoured Google for a sample config/implementation or any documentation at all that describes the appropriate membership provider to use. The only thing I have found are hints - "It's included out of the box," or "create a .NET app that authenticates off of AD and expose OpenID."

How can I query off my client's AD? Is there a provider included with DNoA?
