in thread Active Directory DC and OU

If you just want to query ActiveDirectory, Net::LDAP is fine. But for writing, AD seems to have a problem with non-ASCII characters because (except within the distinguishedName) utf-8 is not used and Net::LDAP in version3 insists on writing utf-8.

  • either use Encode to iso-8859-1 and use Net::LDAP version2, e.g.
    my $ldap = Net::LDAP->new($hostname, version => 2) or die "Error: can't connect to '$hostname'";
  • or Win32::AD::User which is good for adding and editing users but doesn't support searches
  • or use pure Win32::OLE (that's the way I prefer). Argel postet some very good links below.

Best regards,

[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus we will be glad to have you here more frequently, tho ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
