Gets or sets a value that indicates whether queue addresses should be converted using Active Directory.

Namespace:   System.ServiceModel
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

member UseActiveDirectory : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if queue addresses should be converted using Active Directory; otherwise, false.

The Message Queuing (MSMQ) queue addresses can consist of path names or direct format names. With a direct format name, Message Queuing resolves the queue name using DNS, NetBIOS or IP. With a path name, Message Queuing resolves the queue name using Active Directory.

By default, the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) queued transport converts the URI of a message queue to a direct format name. By setting the UseActiveDirectory property to true, an application can specify that the queued transport should resolve the queue name using Active Directory rather than DNS, NetBIOS, or IP.

The following code shows how to set the UseActiveDirectory property.

NetMsmqBinding binding = new NetMsmqBinding();
binding.UseActiveDirectory = true;
