    Hi

    I am developing network application C++. I want to use Active directory
    to manage computers and users. Before I have used MSSQL to store
    information for computers and users.
    Does any body know how to use ADAM to fetch informaion from AD.?
    Is this a good idea to use AD to get informaion all the time through
    network.?

    thanks

  2. You can use ADAM and create mirror objects of computers and users from AD.
    Then store your custom object in ADAM for each user and computer.

    Thanks for reply
    When we create ADAM instance on computer, could this possible the ADAM
    instance has all information i.e. imported from m AD(all computers and
    users)

  4. Sure, but it won't happen magically something has to sync the information. You
    could use MIIS/IIFP or ADAMSYNC.
