Hi All Hoping someone can help me out, I am trying to get LDAP working within WinPE and am so happy I found this forum because I was totally lost at the beginning. I have added the dll's and the registry key into my WinPE 2.0 boot image so thats all fine. I have a HTA that runs as part of our imaging process that promtps for various details about the machine, one thing I am trying to do is get a few of the drop down menus populated directly from AD. My HTA works fine when I run it on a normal Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 machine but when I run it from within WinPE I get the following error: "The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted" My code that executes the AD authentication and binding is below: Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2 Const ADS_SECURE_AUTHENTICATION = 1 Const ADS_SERVER_BIND = 200 Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") objShell.regWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1\1406", 0, "REG_DWORD" objShell.regWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3\1406", 0, "REG_DWORD" Set objDomain = GetObject("LDAP:").OpenDSObject("LDAP://ptcdcco1." & strDomainName & ".wa.gov.au/DC=" & strDomainName & ",DC=WA,DC=GOV,DC=AU" , strDomainMaster , strDomainMasterPwd ,1 + 512) Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command") objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject" objConnection.Properties("User ID") = strDomainMaster objConnection.Properties("Password") = strDomainMasterPwd objConnection.Properties("Encrypt Password") = TRUE objConnection.Properties("ADSI Flag") = ADS_SERVER_BIND Or ADS_SECURE_AUTHENTICATION objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider" Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000 objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE Can anyone help me out with that error?
