Lansweeper reads about 44 different fields from the Active Directory user records and stuffs them into tblADusers. Is there a way to pull more of that data? EG: ExtendedAttribute1

Or, alternately, is there a way to lookup this info during a report run (reference AD directly, link from username in the report to username in AD, then include ExtendedAttribute1 in the report)?

Thanks,
-Jeff

The AD fields scanned by Lansweeper are hard coded into the Lansweeper Server service, but you could potentially use OPENQUERY to retrieve additional AD information directly from a report. We can't really provide instructions or support for this, but more information on OPENQUERY can be found in this article on the Microsoft website for instance. Your database will need to be installed under SQL Server for this.

Built-in scanning of additional AD information is on the wish list as well, though we do not have a release date for this feature.

Ok, thank you for the information. Please add my vote for the feature to pull in all or specified AD fields 🙂
