LDAP Label - long computer name

08/22/2017 862 views

I currently have a working LDAP label against an AD group with computer objects in it.  My issue is that the AD group only keeps the first 15 characters of the name of the computer object in the group, and I have some computer names that are more than 15 characters.

This is what the Advanced Search of my LDAP query has right now:


For example, the computer name that I want is Hernandez-laptop but the computer object added to the Patching-Workstation-Pilot group is Hernandez-lapto

How can I modify the LDAP query so that it is able to add Hernandez-laptop to the LDAP label correctly?

  • Have you found a solution to this? I am in the same predicament.
    • I got around it by making it look at dnshostname knowing that all my computers have the same DNS suffix.
