Active Directory Pack Slowness

    Question

  • Has anyone else experienced extreme slowness while using activities from the AD IP? I
    created a runbook to look for orphaned user folders in our user directories
    across all our sites which used the "Get User" activity and I had to
    find something else due to the length of time it took to search. A list of 286
    folders took over 1 1/2 hours before I finally killed it. I can do the same
    search with the AD cmdlets in about 15-20 seconds from the same runbook server.
    The criteria of my search is the homdirectory field and I flag the folder as
    orphaned if there is no corresponding account in AD. The runbook then takes
    ownership of the directory and moves it to another location.<o:p></o:p>

    What I had to end up doing was to create a powershell script that does a for loop and then
    passes the data to the next activity as delimited text. Surely not as
    convenient as using the published data supplied by the "Get User"
    activity.<o:p></o:p>

    Any ideas?<o:p></o:p>

    Thanks<o:p></o:p>

  • Yeah, it's crazy slow. I'm sticking with powershell for this particular task I guess. Thanks to all replies!
