    LDAP error at MS_Exchange Server

    laxman Newbie

      when a user registers on our website, we have to create a mailbox
      an ASP page on MS Exchange Server5.5 on a Windows NT4.0 with IIS4.0 and
      ADSI2.5 installed on it.
      Since i am new to this please bear with my simple queries and help me
      here is my questionaire...

      1. Do i need to install anything else on my server for this job?
      2. Do i need to change any settings on my Exchange server or IIS?
      3. How do i check the version of LDAP running on the system?
      4. I have not installed any LDAP server on my system as it seems MS
      5.5 has a built-in one. Is this true?

      Now let me tell you the trials i have made.

      1. Due to reported conflicts in Port number 386 used by LDAP by default
      i have changed it to 777
      following is the code which i am using to create a mail box. in this
      code 2. I am trying to first logon to the NT Server, for creating a
      mailbox, with administrator rights.
      i guess the logon itself fails. So i need some help in this area also.
      3. Now i am trying to create a mailbox and then trying to associate it
      with an existing NT account.

      OrgName = "nuis"
      SiteName = "kyzencs"
      strUserName = "administrator" ' this user has admin rights on winnt
      strPassword =""
      LoginId = "kalyan" 'mailbox name to create
      FirstName = "Kalyan"
      LastName = "Chakravarthy"

      'Start Logon to NT
      strADsPath = "WinNT://venus"
      Set oADsObject = GetObject(strADsPath)
      Dim strADsNamespace
      Dim oADsNamespace
      strADsNamespace = left(strADsPath, instr(strADsPath,
      set oADsNamespace = GetObject(strADsNamespace)
      Set oADsObject = oADsNamespace.OpenDSObject(strADsPath,
      strUserName, strPassword, 0)
      'End Logon to NT

      'Start Getting the SID for the user ID to which all mailboxes are
      with by using ADSItools component
      dim varSecurityID
      Set objSIDComp = Server.CreateObject("ADSITools.ExNTSID")
      varSecurityID = objSIDComp.GetMySID("venus", "kyzencs",
      'End Getting the SID for the user ID that all mailboxes are associated

      'Start Creating the mailbox in the DS with ADSI
      strPath = "LDAP://venus:777/o=" & OrgName & "/ou=" & SiteName
      Set recipcont_obj = GetObject(CStr(strPath))
      'LDAP Name...should be same as alias
      Set recip_obj = recipcont_obj.Create("organizationalPerson",
      recip_obj.Put "mailPreferenceOption", 0

      recip_obj.Put "sn", LastName 'Last Name

      recip_obj.Put "cn", LoginId 'Mailbox Name

      recip_obj.Put "givenName", FirstName 'First Name

      recip_obj.Put "uid", LoginId 'Alias

      recip_obj.Put "Home-MTA", "cn=Microsoft MTA,cn=" & ServerName &
      & SiteName & ",o=" & OrgName

      recip_obj.Put "Home-MDB", "cn=Microsoft Private MDB,cn=" &
      & ",cn=Servers,cn=Configuration,ou=" & SiteName & ",o=" & OrgName

      Response.Write varSecurityID

      recip_obj.Put "Assoc-NT-Account", (varSecurityID) 'Associate this
      mail box with a primary Windows Account of Administrator

      recip_obj.Put "mail", LoginId & "@" & Domain 'SMTP Address

      recip_obj.setinfo ' commit the contents of the adsi object to the

      'End Creating the mailbox in the DS with ADSI

      Response.Write "Success... Your new MailBox created."


      using this code i am getting the following error:error '80072021'
