Recommended way to get ldifde.exe tool?

Hi -

Our product has some scripts that use ldifde.exe to extract information from
AD (W2K). What't the best way for our customers to get the ldifde.exe tool
onto a system that will run these scripts? Is it available in a AD tools
resource kit, etc?

Thanks,
-Lance

ldifde.exe is provided natively with the W2K and W2K3 OS and is located in
%systemroot%\system32

Thanks - so if they install our product on a WinXP Pro system, what's the
best way for them to get ldifde.exe onto the XP system? Is there a download
or toolkit that has it, or do they need to copy from a W2K/W2K3 system?
Or, can we redistribute it with our product installer?

Thanks,
-Lance

You can copy it from a server.

I doubt you can distribute it. You'll need to speak to MS about that.

Have you installed the Windows 2000 Support tools?
refer to article number 237677 for more information about usage.

Brett J,

Not sure what installing the Support Tools has to do with ldifde? You
reference the MSKB Article 237677 which gives very basic usage information.
I was not able to find any mention of the Support Tools, though. It does
state, however, that you can copy ldifde to a WIN2000 Pro system and use it
against an AD Domain Controller....

Still not sure what the Support Tools has to do with ldifde? But, it is a
good thing that you mention the Support Tools. They are a wonderful set of
utilities.

True,

I know Win2k3 has the ldifde, not sure if this was available with Win2k by
default, but I recall some references to the support tools for Win2k.

The KB 237677 contains useful information on syntax.

regards
