Connnection String -- help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm attempting to use a Connection String to add my server (ideally, Active Directory) to the Data Source Catalog in Front Page.

    I begin as follows --
    >Insert Data View
    >>Select a Data Source
    >>>Database Connection
    >>>>Add to Catalog

    Configure Database Connection
    >Use Custom Connection String
    I am having trouble entering a properly functioning connection string. I am trying the following --
    Provider=ADSDSOObject;User ID=myID;Password=myPassoword;<LDAP://DC=private,DC=myCompany,DC=com>;(objectClass=*);sn, givenName; subtree;
    and --
    Provider=ADSDSOObject;User ID=myID;Password=myPassword;<LDAP://DC="private,DC=myCompany,DC=com">;(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(sn=*)))); subtree;
    and --
    Provider=ADSDSOObject;User ID=myID;Password=myPassword;<LDAP://servername/OU=pem;DC=private,DC=myCompany,DC=com>;(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(sn=*)))); subtree;
    Provider=ADSDSOObject;User ID=myID;Password=myPassword;<LDAP://servername/>;
    Provider=ADSDSOObject;User ID=myID;Password=myPassword;<http://servername>;
    Any help would be much appeciated. As you can see, I have no idea what I'm doing wrong or if I'm even barking up the right tree! Thanks
