I am releasing version 1.2 of the powershell code function “Get-ldapobject” in a series of script updates that I will be releasing over the next few weeks.
The full explanation of this function can be found on the release page here:
|12-12-2016||V1.0||Martijn van Geffen||Initial Script|
|06-01-2017||V1.1||Martijn van Geffen||Released on Technet|
|26-02-2018||V1.2||Martijn van Geffen||Set the default search OU to the forest root to better support multi domain and multi forest topology`s|
What is fixed / enhanced in this new version:
When working with forests with lot`s of child domains I found that the result was not all ways as expected due to the default search scoop was all ways your local domain. The code is now updated to do a search within the scope of the forest root. This mean that when searching for a user on email address and targeting a Global catalog all users within the forest will now be returned. This method of querying works very well together with the function “Get-dc -isgc” because it will locate a up and running GC without knowing the forest name. You can find the “Get-Dc” function in the TechNet gallery or under the script section of this site.
This is demonstrated below:
