Unanswered: Active Directory linked server problem
Here is my predicament...
We have two production domains, no trust or relationship between the two. On every SQL 2005 server within both domains, we have a standard ADSI linked server we use to query Active Directory (AD). The linked server's security configuration is a domain account with read permissions to all of AD. We are able to query AD in both domains and get results. However, in one of the domains, let's call it DomainA, our queries are failing to return recently created AD groups and users. Other groups and users within the same OU are being returned by the query. Those same groups/users, created at roughly the same time in DomainB, are returning just fine. We validated that the groups/users in AD have replicated to all domain controllers within each domain.
Can anyone think of a reason as to why this behavior is occurring?
Pat, you are right on. DomainA simply had more groups/users defined overall and that was excluding the elements from my query. I simply had to adjust my LDAP query to filter down on the specific groups i was after and problem was resolved. Much appreciated.
