Active Directory 2000 + 2003 Attribute


  • I have a question in regards to AD 2000 + 2003 attributes and impersonation.

    Currently I would like to retrieve the username and password details (user object) from AD using an unique attribute from AD. It will be a web service method thus the query will be run under a service account.
    After retrieving the user object details, the web service will impersonate that person and run a job.

    My questions are:
    1) Can I reverse lookup AD to retrieve the username and password given a unique attribute?
    2) Is it then possible given the details retrieved from AD to impersonate this person to run a job?
    3) I will be implementing this under AD 2000, but will it run under AD 2003?
