This article describes how to programmatically add a member to a specific distribution list in a Site Server 3.0 Membership directory using Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) 2.5 and VBScript.
To add a member to a distribution list in Site Server 3.0, perform the following steps:
- Bind to the Distribution List in which you want to add the user.
- Append the Distinguished Name (DN) of the user who you want to add to the Distribution List.
The following code illustrates this procedure:
Const ADS_ATTR_APPEND = 3 Dim strDistList, strLdapSrv, strRoot, strMemberPath, strUserCn, _ <BR/> strUserDn, strDistListDn, strAdmin, strAdminPwd strLdapSrv = "LDAP://localhost:5292" strRoot = "o=Microsoft" strMemberPath = ",ou=Members," + strRoot strUserCn = "cn=JohnDoe" strUserDn = strUserCn + strMemberPath strDistListDn = strLdapSrv + "/" + strRoot + _<BR/> "/ou=DistributionLists/cn=KmBriefList" strAdmin = "cn=Administrator,ou=Members," + strRoot strAdminPwd = "password" 'Bind to the specific Distribution List using Administrator credentials Set adsDistList = GetObject("LDAP:") Set adsDistList = adsDistList.OpenDSObject(strDistListDn, strAdmin, _ strAdminPwd, CLng(0)) ' Append the new member to the ones in the distribution list adsDistList.PutEx ADS_ATTR_APPEND, "dlMember", Array(strUserDN) 'Flush the property cache and update the directory adsDistList.SetInfo 'Destroy the objects Set adsDistList = Nothing
