Microsoft Operations Manager

Domain Property (Active Directory)

The Domainproperty gets or sets the domain to indicate where Active Directory bind operations are to occur.

[VBScript] ActiveDirectory.Domain



Return Value



You can set either the Serverproperty or the Domainproperty, but you should not set both. If both properties are assigned values, the Serverproperty takes precedence.


The following example performs a bind operation and determines the average bind time to Active Directory.

Function GetAverageTimeToBindToPDC(strDomain)
	Dim objActiveDirectory
	Dim lngBindTotal, lngBindCount, fAverageBindTime

	Set objActiveDirectory =

	objActiveDirectory.Domain = strDomain

	If (objActiveDirectory.BindPDCMaster()) Then
		lngBindTotal = objActiveDirectory.BindTotal
		lngBindCount = objActiveDirectory.BindCount
		If (lngBindCount > 0) Then
			fAverageBindTime = lngBindTotal / lngBindCount
		End If
	End If

	Set objActiveDirectory = Nothing

	GetAverageTimeToBindToPDC = fAverageBindTime
End Function
