Range Retrieval

Working on the Server 2008 hard limit of 5000 attribute values max per query, which breaks our Identity Management process. I’m looking at having to write a clone of LDIFDE that can issue queries using Range Retrieval and then synthesizes a single LDIF entry for groups with more than 5000 members.

Safari Tech Books online provides some good resources, including The .NET Developer’s Guide to Directory Services Programming [at Amazon], which provides a good code example in Listing 6.8. Range Retrieval Using DirectorySearcher.

Or maybe I should just post-process the LDIFDE-generated LDIF file…
