IADsNameTranslate Interface

The IADsNameTranslate interface is used to translate distinguished names between various formats. Name translations are performed on the directory server, and this interface is currently available only to objects in Active Directory.

The following code example converts an account name from Windows format into LDAP format.


HRESULT TranslateNTNameToLDAPName( BSTR * pNTName, BSTR * pLDAPName )
{
    IADsNameTranslate *pTrans;
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;
 
    hr = CoCreateInstance(CLSID_NameTranslate, 
                          NULL,
                          CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER,
                          IID_IADsNameTranslate,
                          (void**) &pTrans );
    if (FAILED(hr)) { return hr; }

    hr = pTrans->Init(ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_DOMAIN, 
                      CComBSTR("Fabrikam.com"));
    if (FAILED(hr)) { return hr; }

    hr = pTrans->Set(ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4, *pNTName);
    if (FAILED(hr)) { return hr; }

    hr = pTrans->Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779, pLDAPName);
    pTrans->Release();
    return hr;
}
