Querying Active Directory using VBScript

To look at all the members of an OU, try this…

Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=YourOU,DC=YourDomain,DC=com")
For each objMember in ObjOU  ' get all the members'

    ' do something'


To do a custom search for DNs try this…

set conn = createobject("ADODB.Connection")
Set iAdRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strDefaultNamingContext = iAdRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
Conn.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
Conn.Open "ADs Provider"

strQueryDL = "<LDAP://" & strDefaultNamingContext & ">;(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user));distinguishedName,adspath;subtree"
set objCmd = createobject("ADODB.Command")
objCmd.ActiveConnection = Conn
objCmd.Properties("SearchScope") = 2 ' we want to search everything
objCmd.Properties("Page Size") = 500 ' and we want our records in lots of 500 

objCmd.CommandText = strQueryDL
Set objRs = objCmd.Execute

While Not objRS.eof

    ' do something with objRS.Fields("distinguishedName")'
