Namespace:   System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement
Assembly:  System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement (in System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.dll)

Public Property Enabled As Nullable(Of Boolean)

Property Value

Type: System.Nullable(Of Boolean)

true if the principal is enabled, or null if the account has not been persisted; otherwise false.

Exception Condition

The underlying store does not support this property.


The application tried to set a null value for this property.

If the principal has not been persisted in the store, this property returns null. After the principal is persisted, the default enabled setting depends on the store. The AD DS and AD LDS stores disable new principals when they are persisted, whereas SAM enables new principals when they are persisted. The application can only set this property to a value after it has been persisted in the store.
