LDAP Query - Sub Containers

Question asked by borisj on Apr 10, 2016

I am trying to get all members (user class) of a security group for another (2 way trust) domain.

If I put the users directly into the CN being queried, this works fine but if the users are instead members of a sub-container, this doesn't work - e.g.


  • SG:Managers
    • SG:Finance Manager


    • SG:=Sales Manager



I want to query Managers and get Bob and Sue without putting them directly into Managers.


I also tried using usergroup.asmx but across domains that threw an exception:

Failed to invoke web service. Error returned from server: <soap:Fault xmlns:soap=""><faultcode>soap:Server</faultcode><faultstring>Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown.


Any ideas please?
