    You may want to match part of a DN, for instance when you need to look for your groups in two subtrees of your server. This is most often the attribute that denotes group membership or an objectClass like "Person". Ldapsearch has enough options to make a blog on those alone. One such point is while most data is replicated across domain controllers, last login is not always replicated. You can also use queries to exclude systems.

    All users with "Password Never Expires" set (Note 4).All my queries using these tools are wildcard searches.

    (&(objectCategory=person) (objectClass=user) (userAccountControl=)).If you already know the name of the groups you can of course list the members of groups in your attributes.

    All disabled user objects (Note 4).As the environment used for examples only had one domain controller it was consistent.

    (&(objectCategory=person) (objectClass=user) (userAccountControl=2)).As stated in the beginning, tools such as BloodHound and PowerView are much better at these.

    In this short post we'll share some useful examples of LDAP query to Active Directory and show how to execute them.When the query runs, the tool populates the list with every system from the server's OU.

    Dsquery and ldapsearch are both tools used for querying AD In the example below, you can see a query with user specified for the object.Other trademarks identified on this page are owned by their respective owners.

    LDAP is used to search your active directory for information about users, computers, and groups within your Active Directory database. LDAP.For this blog, I will not be going through suggestions on how to get credentials or context to start querying, but assume that you already have the prerequisite information.

    How do I match more than one attribute? For example, if my users are distinguished by having two objectClass attributes (one equal to 'person'.This ensures that you are not flooding your application with users and groups that do not need access.

    The Saved Queries in Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) mmc console allow you to.While we battled to get a solution working to use these tools, we still needed to make progress towards our objectives.

    With the computer object type there are quite a few options you can use to filter computers out, but I will not be exploring much of these in this blog.

    This filter will produce a list of results where the objects have value1 for attribute1 but do not have value2 for attribute2.

    The dsquery utility returns the Distinquished Name of an object that matches the specified parameters, and for LDAP filters it has a filter parameter.
