A question popped up on CF-Talk today about adding users to an Exchange Distribution list using <CFLdap>. I figured I would share my solution in case it could help anyone else.
The easiest way to do this is to add the user to the list of members of the group, as opposed to adding the group to the user. (I’m not 100% sure, but I think that you technically can’t add a group membership to the user.) You also need to do all modifications to ldap objects through their distinguished names, not their username, group name or as Microsoft likes to call it, “samAccountName.”
So you find out the distinguished name for the user, the distinguished name for the group, then add the user to the group. The code for doing so is in the extended version.
Update: My initial attempt to post this code caused my server to barf. Evidently my code displayer didn’t like it. So I’m just linking to it.
One thought on “CFLdap, Active Directory, and Group Membership”
So, do you have any quick and easy solutions of finding out if a user is already a member of a group? Thanks.
