IADsPathname Interface

The IADsPathname interface parses and modifies various elements of an ADsPath. It also converts ADsPaths between various display formats.

The following code example extracts and returns the server name from a valid ADsPath for display to the user in a maintenance utility.


HRESULT GetServerName(BSTR adsPath, BSTR *adsServer)
{
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;
    IADsPathname *pIADsPathname = NULL;
 
    // Create the IADsPathname object.
    hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_Pathname,
                          NULL,
                          CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                          IID_IADsPathname,
                          (void**) &pIADsPathname);
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        if (pIADsPathname)
            pIADsPathname->Release();
        return (hr);
    }
 
    // Set the path.
    hr = pIADsPathname->Set(adsPath, ADS_SETTYPE_FULL);
    if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
        // Extract and return the server name.
        hr = pIADsPathname->Retrieve(ADS_FORMAT_SERVER, adsServer);
 
    // Cleanup.
    pIADsPathname->Release();
    return (hr);
}

The following code example helps to initialize a newly created ADSI object by setting the object's Distinguished Name property from its own ADsPath. Be aware that the calling routine must commit any changes to the underlying directory store by invoking the SetInfo method.


HRESULT SetDistinguishedName(IADs *pIADs)
{
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;
    CComBSTR sbstrADsPath;
    IADsPathname *pIADsPathname = NULL;
 
    // Get the ADsPath for this object.
    hr = pIADs->get_ADsPath(&sbstrADsPath);
    if (FAILED(hr))
        return (hr);
 
    // Create the IADsPathname object.
    hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_Pathname,
                          NULL,
                          CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                          IID_IADsPathname,
                          (void**) &pIADsPathname);
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        if (pIADsPathname)
            pIADsPathname->Release();
        return (hr);
    }
     // Set the path.
    hr = pIADsPathname->Set(sbstrADsPath, ADS_SETTYPE_FULL);
    if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
    {
        CComBSTR sbstrDNPath;

        // Convert the path to Distinguished Name format.
        hr = pIADsPathname->Retrieve(ADS_FORMAT_WINDOWS_DN,
                                     &sbstrDNPath);
 
        if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
        {
            // Set the distinguished name property.
            VARIANT var;
            VariantInit(&var);
            V_BSTR(&var) = sbstrDNPath;
            V_VT(&var) = VT_BSTR;
            hr = pIADs->Put(CComBSTR("distinguishedName"), var);
            VariantClear(&var);
        }
    }
 
    // Cleanup.
    pIADsPathname->Release();
    return (hr);
 
}
