ADSI Objects for the WinNT: Provider

There are too many ADSI objects with too many methods and properties to list them all in this book. In this section, I'll give you an overview of the most important objects used to manage Windows networks and their most important properties. This reference should give you an overview of ADSI's capabilities and enough information to write useful scripts. You should, however, check the Microsoft ADSI documentation for the complete reference. Later in the chapter, I'll briefly cover the objects used for Active Directory management under the LDAP: provider as well as Internet Information Services management. There just isn't enough room to cover the objects and techniques used to manage Novell NetWare, Novell NDS, Microsoft Exchange, and generic LDAP servers (that, and the ends of my fingers are wearing off from typing all this stuff). At the end of the chapter, however, you'll find additional information sources listed.

Important Notes Regarding the Microsoft Documentation

The ADSI objects are written up in the Microsoft ADSI documentation that you can download from msdn.microsoft.com, under the heading Active Directory Service Interfaces Version 2.5, ADSI Reference, ADSI Interfaces. You'll need to use this documentation to get anywhere with ADSI, and you'll need to remember some quirky and important things when you're reading it:
