I know exactly how you feel.

Check the settings on you AD Server, as per this and this, and note the caveats and limitations on the latter page regarding max number of entries in a secondary user group, and the MAX size of MaxPageSize.

Short of it: Looks like you can set MaxPageSize in AD as well, but the MAX MaxPageSize / request is 1000...Looks like you're SOL (another microsoft link here that supports the claim).

    But it can be done in VBScript with almost identical code. The offending line that I can't translate from VBScript is objADOCmd.Properties("Page Size")=10000. So it must be possible. I'm missing something. I have to be.

      Well, when you execute a command object, you get back a recordset object. Why not prep the RS object ahead of time, and use the command and connection objects after your leg work is done, like so:
      use Win32::OLE 'in'; my $ADO = Win32::OLE->new("ADODB.Connection"); $ADO->{Provider} = "ADsDSOObject"; $ADO->Open("ADSI Provider"); my $ADOCmd=Win32::OLE->new("ADODB.Command"); $ADOCmd->{ActiveConnection}=$ADO;#new $ADOCmd->{CommandText}="<$ADSPath>;(objectClass=User);samAccountNam +e,HomeDirectory;SubTree"; my $ADOrs = Win32::OLE->new("ADODB.RecordSet"); $ADOrs->PageSize->{Value}=10000; $ADOrs->Open({Source=>$ADOCmd, ActiveConnection=>$ADO,}) until ($ADOrs->EOF){ my $homeDir=lc($ADOrs->Fields(1)->{Value}); if ($homeDir=~/^\\\\mf/){ my $account=lc($ADOrs->Fields(0)->{Value}); print OUT "$account\t$homeDir\n"; } $ADOrs->MoveNext; } $ADOrs->Close; $ADO->Close; print "Wrote Accounts\n";
      My thought is that in VB, you are lucky enough to be able to set the PageSize Property ahead of time, and on execution, the properties are applied when the object is returned. I've come to this (perhaps erroneous) conclusion because if you create the command object and then enumerate through the Command Properties before execution, you get back an empty set.
