Determining User Group Membership in Active Directory and ADAM

Summary

All of the topics in this chapter center on how to manage user objects in either Active Directory or ADAM. This tends to be the most common task that developers are asked to perform. We have covered how we can efficiently find our user objects and set account properties in conjunction with domain-wide policies.

We also touched upon some of the more difficult tasks of setting passwords, as well as determining last logons and password expirations. Finally, we covered how to determine a user's group membership. While we have covered some of the most common, yet troublesome, tasks in user management, we have not exhaustively covered every possible user management scenario. Unfortunately, there are far too many to do them justice. We hope that because we showed the most irksome of the tasks, developers can extrapolate from the examples and use previous chapters as leaping points to figure out each unique scenario.
