RE: Custom Schema and MS ADSI

I think the information for which you search is in this MSKB Article:


It describes "How to Use ADSI to Query a Third-Party LDAP Server."  

Hope this helps.

Subject: Custom Schema and MS ADSI

I have been able to follow several threads where people have tried to
access custom classes and attributes with Microsoft ADSI. I have not
seen any solution to the problem yet. I have tried almost every possible
combination. My questions are:
1. Is there anybody who has actually accessed custom attributes and
classes from ADSI (for instance with VB)?
2. How do you get ADSI to discover the schema? In my case all my custom
classes are missing, but also classes who are not in the core schema,
like inetOrgPerson.
3. As I have understood it, OpenLDAP 2.0 exposes the schema as described
in LDAP v3; I am able to browse the schema and custom classes with other
clients like "gq". So who is violating the protocol? Is it the ADSI or
is it OpenLDAP?
4. Is it possible to define the schema in the registry of the client
machine? If so, could somebody point to a description of how this is
I would really like to hear from anyone who has been able to read custom
attributes through VBScript and ADSI. If they would send me a pointer to
some example code, it would make my day.
Thanks in advance,
