TSQL LDAP query via Linked Server [closed]

Posted on

Question :

I have strange problem, I have 3 SQL Server 2012 with Sp1 instances, and on all of them, the versions are identical.

I am trying to query Active Directory services, on 2 of them this is working correctly, but one of them is throwing an error

Cannot get the column information from OLE DB provider “ADsDSOObject” for linked server “ADSI_TEST”.

If I don’t use Active Directory Server Name in the query it works fine.

Do you have any idea?

Answer :

to query the active directory I use the procedure xp_logininfo

Requires membership in the sysadmin fixed server role or membership in
the public fixed database role in the master database with EXECUTE
permission granted.

I have been using the following script and it works fine for me:


DECLARE @NTLogin nvarchar(128); 
SET @NTLogin = 'mycompanyperson_or_group_I_want_to_check'

         [Account Name] nvarchar(128),
         [Type] nvarchar(128),
         [Privilege] nvarchar(128),
         [Mapped Login Name] nvarchar(128),
         [Permission Path] nvarchar(128) )

INSERT INTO @UserList EXEC xp_logininfo @NTLogin, 'all' --insert group information

IF EXISTS (SELECT * FROM @UserList WHERE [Type] = 'group') --only if it's a group
   INSERT INTO @UserList EXEC xp_logininfo @NTLogin, 'members' --insert member information
