Can anyone help with an LDAP filter to search and find all computers associated

with a particular OU in active directory. In other words all computers found in that OU.

I think I am doing something wrong cos I am not getting any entries with my filters.

E.g.

(&(objectCategory=computer)(dn=OU_Name*))


.....and yes.... connection to the ldap server was successful and I can view my active directory tree

from the ldap viewer in the K1000.

I know that the OU name will be part of the "distinguished name"in the computer's attributes..... so I

want to create an ldap label to find all entries of computers that have that OU's name in its Attrribute

Thanks guys.

Here is the Advanced Search that I have for one of my LDAP Labels:
(&(name=KBOX_COMPUTER_NAME)(distinguishedName=CN=KBOX_COMPUTER_NAME,OU=User Services,OU=Library and Information Services,OU=Departments,OU=GPO Exceptions,DC=FAS,DC=LCL))

Note that you need to recreate the entire OU structure in the search. KACE will replace KBOX_COMPUTER_NAME with the machine name when performing the search to see if it matches. You also need to have the Base DN set correctly. In my case that is DC=fas,DC=lcl.

You do not need to filter based off distinguishedName if they are already segregated by OU.

Set your "Base DN" to the OU

OU=HumanResources,OU=MainCampus,DC=Subdomain,DC=Domain,DC=COM

Then your Search would simply be:

(&(name=KBOX_COMPUTER_NAME)(objectCategory=computer))
