( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm trying to get the full name of the current user on NT. Normaly I can use  $<, $> from that kind of stuff. But this does not work on NT. So I can use  $ENV{USERNAME} instead. This gives me the logon name. In the Usermanager there is a field where the whole Username is specified. I need to access this Information. I tried out Win32::NetAdmin but this shows me only the names of my local machine. I'm currently working in a big department, so there are many different Recourcedomains and one Masterdomain. The Accounts are on the masterdomain. So what can I do to get the Information I need? When I use this:
use Win32::NetAdmin qw(GetUser); GetUser('',undef,\%hash);
I get a hash filled with the users of the local machine.

So I thought that:

use Win32::NetAdmin qw(GetUser); GetUser('masterdomainservername',undef,\%hash);
... should give me all the users in the masterdomain. But it doesn't. I get an empty hash. Do I need admin privileges to do that? Or what can I do to get the Infomation I need without having admin-privileges ?

Any help is welcome :-)

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
