QuestionUnable to Update LDAP property "department" Pin
David Mujica3-Jun-13 10:12

I'm trying to create a utility to perform a mass update of our Active Directory and all I get is the error, "Server is unwilling to process request."

Below is my code:

VB
Dim de As New DirectoryEntry("GC://DC=us,DC=myCompany,DC=com", "myDomain\MyAdminUsername", "myPassword")

        Dim ds As New DirectorySearcher(de)
        ds.PropertiesToLoad.Add("department")
        ds.SearchScope = SearchScope.Subtree

        Dim ue As New DirectoryEntry   
        
        ds.Filter = String.Format("(SAMAccountName={0})", Me.tboxUserName.Text)

        Try
            ue = ds.FindOne.GetDirectoryEntry

            For Each sproperty As String In ue.Properties.PropertyNames
                debug.print(String.Format("{0}{1} : {2} ", System.Environment.NewLine, sproperty, ue.Properties(sproperty)(0)))
            Next

           
            ' test the update here ...

            If (ue.Properties.Contains("department")) Then
                ue.Properties("department").Value = "IT"
            Else
                ue.Properties("department").Add("IT")
            End If

            ue.CommitChanges()
            ue.RefreshCache()
            ue.Close()

        Catch ex As Exception
           
           debug.print (ex.Message)

        End Try


The code seems to connect to the LDAP server and retrieve the correct user because I can see valid data being displayed from the ue.Properties.PropertyNames collection.

The error is thrown on the "CommitChanges()" line.

BTW: This demo program is a WinForms .NET 4.0 applicaiton

I have tried it passing no credentials and passing valid domain credentials and I get the same " ... unwilling to process request." error.

What am I doing wrong?
