IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method

The IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method initializes a name translate object by binding to a specified directory server, domain, or global catalog, using the specified user credential. To initialize the object without an explicit user credential, use IADsNameTranslate::Init.

The IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method initializes the object by setting the server or domain that the object will point to and supplying a user credential.

Syntax

HRESULT InitEx(
  long lnSetType,
  BSTR bstrADsPath,
  BSTR bstrUserID,
  BSTR bstrDomain,
  BSTR bstrPassword
);

Parameters

lnSetType

bstrADsPath

The name of the server or domain, depending on the value of lnInitType. When ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC is issued, this parameter is ignored. The global catalog server of the domain of the current machine will be used to carry out the name translate operations. This method will fail if the computer is not part of a domain, as no global catalog will be found in this scenario. For more information, see ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_ENUM.

bstrUserID

User name.

bstrDomain

User domain name.

bstrPassword

User password.

Return Value

Returns a standard HRESULT or RPC error code, including:

Remarks

After the successful initialization, use the name translate object to submit requests of name translations of directory objects. For more information see IADsNameTranslate::Set, IADsNameTranslate::Get, IADsNameTranslate::SetEx, or IADsNameTranslate::GetEx.

Examples

The following C/C++ code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method to initialize an IADsNameTranslate object before the distinguished name of a user object is rendered in the s format.

C++
IADsNameTranslate *pNto;
HRESULT hr;
hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_NameTranslate,
                      NULL,
                      CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                      IID_IADsNameTranslate,
                      (void**)&pNto);
if(FAILED(hr)) { exit 1;}
 
hr = pNto->InitEx(ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER,
                  CComBSTR("myServer"),
                  CComBSTR("jeffsmith"),
                  CComBSTR("Fabrikam"),
                  CComBSTR("top secret"));
if (FAILED(hr)) { exit 1;}
 
hr =pNto->Set(ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779,
             CComBSTR("cn=jeffsmith,cn=users,dc=Fabrikam,dc=com"));
if(FAILED(hr)) {exit 1;}
 
BSTR bstr;
hr = pNto->Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4, &bstr);
printf("Name in the translated format: %S\n", bstr);
 
SysFreeString(bstr);
pNto->Release();
The following Visual Basic code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method to initialize an IADsNameTranslate object in order to have the distinguished name of a user object rendered in the s user name format.
VB
Dim nto As New NameTranslate
dso="CN=jeffsmith, CN=users, DC=Fabrikam dc=COM"
server = "myServer"
domain = "Fabrikam"
user = "jeffsmith"
passwd = "myPass"
 
nto.InitEx  ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER, server,user,domain,passwd
nto.Set ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dso
trans = nto.Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4) 
MsgBox "Name in the translated format: " & trans
The following VBScript/ASP code example uses the IADsNameTranslate::InitEx method to initialize an IADsNameTranslate object in order to have the distinguished name of a user object rendered in the s user name format.
VB
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<html>
<body>
<%
  Dim nto
  const ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER = 2  ' VBScript cannot read 
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779 = 1        ' enumeration definition
  const ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4 = 3
 
  server = "myServer"
  domain = "Fabrikam"
  user = "jeffsmith"
  passwd = "myPass"
 
  dn = "CN=jeffsmith,CN=Users,DC=Fabrikam,DC=COM" 
 
  Set nto = Server.CreateObject("NameTranslate")
  nto.InitEx ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_SERVER, server,user,domain,passwd
  nto.Set ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, dn
  result = nto.Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4)
 
  Response.Write "<p>Name in the translated format: " & result
 
%>
</body>
</html>
