How to read Dynamic Access Control objects using LDAP

This code sample will enumerate all of the Dynamic Access Control objects in Active Directory.

Prerequisites

Note  This example contains queries that use Active Directory Schema attributes, such as msDS-ClaimAttributeSource. For information about specific attributes in the example, see All Attributes.
