A reader recently asked the following question:
"Is there an LDAP attribute that tracks the connections a user object is using? For example, I need to know how many connections a user has to our servers, and what resources those connections are connected to.
Also, can I query an LDAP attribute for a ZEN workstation object and find out which user account (if any) is connected to that workstation?"
And here's the response from Forum expert Dave Parkes ...
Here's a snippet from one of my PHP scripts. It uses the ZEN NDS info in order to give you the last logged-in user:
$basedn = "ou=Workstations,o=Norgren"; $search="(&(cn=*)(objectclass=workstation))"; $searchattr=array('dn','wmnamecomputer','zeninvcomputermodel','zeninvcomputertype','wmnameuser','wmnameos','wmnamecpu','zeninvprocessortype','zeninvmemorysize','zeninvbiostype','zeninvmacaddress','zeninvipaddress','zeninvlastscandate', 'zeninvnovellclientversion'); // // do the search // $sr=ldap_search($ds, $basedn, $search, $searchattr); // ldap_sort($ds, $sr, "wmnamecomputer");
