First off, it is a misnomer... anything with an @ is a macro, not a function.

Not all containers are OUs and since OUs can be nested, should it just return the closest or all of them? It could work like the @IPAddressX macro where the X on the end designates the level.

What about containers that are not OUs?

Les,

I assume you are referring to this.

@function to determine OU of user and/or workstation

Speaking from a lofty position of complete ignorance about OUs, wouldn't a function be generally better? EnumOU($sKey,$iIndex) or something similar?

Well... I only went with the macro theme cuz the subject had an @ in it.

My user object in AD, for example is:
CN=LLigetfa,OU=Users,OU=FF,OU=CACC,DC=bla,DC=local

It should be read backwards, so as you can see, CACC is off the root, our Fort Frances division has its own OU (FF), and I am in the Users OU. We also nest additional OUs for the purpose of GPOs and such.

many suggestions are interesting :
  • support of XML (but already available with COM Object),
  • support of by ref and by val parameters for functions
  • out parameters for functions (at the present time, to return several values, I must use array but it's not very readable)
  • binary mode for files
  • socket support
  • math functions
  • regular expressions (would be very appreciated because it's very powerful for file manipulation or input validation)
  • a function to split a line of a CSV file (with delimitor AND separator field. The split function is not enough)
  • RD as described by Bryce and others shell commands like pushd and popd
  • Some existant functions should be improved like DIR :
    2 Dir is not sufficient. OK, with recursivity, it's possible to scan a tree but it would be nicer to have :
    $dirhandle = freedirhandle()
    $file=dir( $mask, $dirhandle)
  • event handler for WMI notification (WbemScripting.SWbemSink). Now, it's one of the only points that is not possible in Kix but possible in VBScript (and i hate VB script)


according to me, something like On Error should be prohibited. This is a GOTO (and it's VB). I would prefer something like Try..except or try..finally like in Delphi or try..catch in C#, Java and so on.

That's all for tonight.

Christophe,
How does this relate to a maro or function for OUs? THis is a multi-threaded discussion, so please reply to the proper post in threaded view.

Sorry.

I usually use the flat view and i didn't see the multi-threaded discussion.
can somebody move my post as a response to Bryce's post "RE: Current Suggestions / Request discussions"
or should i repost my answer and delete this post ?

Don't listen to DOC. You can repost and delete but a mod cannot move it along the tree.

Since we have some old timers and noobs alike that maybe don't know how threaded vs. flat works, I would like to reiterate.

This covers a wide range of topics, please respect the threaded view and be careful to reply in the right thread.

Also, these threads are not the proper place to make new suggestions. Those should be posted to the Sugestions forum and replies there should be on-topic, brief, and to the point.

This topic in General Discussions has been setup to draw some of the small arms fire away from Suggestions.


I thank you for understanding

Why are you dumping all over my thread? You should have started a new "thread" at the top of this one in threaded view.

hmm...
should the suggestion list also have a tag for things that are wished from kixtart but which are in KiXforms?

I'm new to KiXtart and have two suggestions to make:

1. Our organisation has a small network based around NT Server with a mixture of 98 and XP Pro workstations. We have roaming profiles on all workstations (not because we roam much, but for backup, recovery and control purposes). One problem we have is when a user is logged into one workstation, then when still logged into that workstation they log into another. My suggestion for a future enhancement of KiXtart is some way that (optionally) KiXtart will only allow a user to log into the network on one workstation at a time?
2. My second suggestion is some way of pausing execution of part of the logon script until the registry has loaded. This would help with a problem I have. We have Outlook 2000 installed on each workstation (but not the server). The PST file is stored on a network share (U:\Outlook - with a unique U: being assigned to each user using USE). I want Outlook to load as part of the login (this is because staff forget to check their email otherwise). I have found that when a different user logs onto the PC, the script executes before the roaming profile is loaded, and so when Outlook loads the PST is for the current user, but retains some settings from the previous user. So I've had to remove the loading of Outlook from the logon script and put it in the StartUp folder on each workstation. This problem only occurs when a different user logs on - there's no problem if the same user logs back on, or if Outlook is ran later in the session. I've tried experimenting with PAUSE, but any pause is arbitrary and may or may not be long enough to allow the roaming profile to load, and may be too long and cause a delay in the workstation loading up. What is needed is some means of deferring execution of part of the roaming profile is loaded.

If there are already ways of working round these problems then I'd be very grateful if someone would let me know.

Thanks.
