hi all


im trying to setup a screen in order to show a full profile of a AD user

so far ive got everything working correctly except getting a few fields to return usefull values


the main one bothering me is the following two AD fields




obviously the built in AD objects cant return these fields

so ive moved to using the dynamicADSO


however both fields always return System.__Comobject for account expiry

and system.object[] for memberof


Ive tried updating the service object for xml multiline and text, but always get the same result back


does anyone know a solution i can use to list all the groups a user is a member of in AD?

If you use the Active Directory Service 2 Service instance you can create an AD Group SmO off of that - it contains a method for GetGroupsByUser - you can bind that to a list view.



If you have a large AD this can take quite a while to return results so run some tests.
