Calls to other methods when used with this driver may produce unexpected results or program failure.

Usage

$db = newAdoConnection('ldap');

Custom Functionality

If defined prior to connection, the following variables will be passed as input bind variables. Valid Domain Values for LDAP Options:

LDAP_OPT_DEREF (integer)
LDAP_OPT_SIZELIMIT (integer)
LDAP_OPT_TIMELIMIT (integer)
LDAP_OPT_PROTOCOL_VERSION (integer)
LDAP_OPT_ERROR_NUMBER (integer)

LDAP_OPT_HOST_NAME (string)
LDAP_OPT_ERROR_STRING (string)
LDAP_OPT_MATCHED_DN (string)
LDAP_OPT_SERVER_CONTROLS (array)
LDAP_OPT_CLIENT_CONTROLS (array)

Make sure to set this BEFORE calling Connect() Example:

$LDAP_CONNECT_OPTIONS = Array(
	Array (
		"OPTION_NAME"=>LDAP_OPT_DEREF,
		"OPTION_VALUE"=>2
	),
	Array (
		"OPTION_NAME"=>LDAP_OPT_SIZELIMIT,
		"OPTION_VALUE"=>100
	),
	Array (
		"OPTION_NAME"=>LDAP_OPT_TIMELIMIT,
		"OPTION_VALUE"=>30
	),
	Array (
