Setting an object’s manager

To update the manager attribute you just set it to the distinguished name of the existing user you require. A distinguished name is of the form: CN=John Smith,CN=Users,DC=test,DC=com.

So to set Jane Active’s manager to the existing user “John Smith” you would use a message like this:


<Directives WhereToBind=”LDAP://CN=Users,DC=test,DC=com” SearchScope=”onelevel” ObjectTypeFilter=”(objectClass=user)” MaxObjects=”1″/>

<Target PropertyName=”cn” EqualToValue=”Jane Active” />

<Change PropertyName=”manager” ChangeToValue=”CN=John Smith,CN=Users,DC=test,DC=com” ChangeType=”update” />


What transactional strategy does the ActiveADAPTER Send Adapter use?

The Send Adapter commits changes per message and per object. This means commits cannot span messages. Within a message, changes to an object are all committed together. To ensure changes are all or nothing, therefore, the strategy you need to use is one message per object.

I have purchased an ActiveADAPTER license. How do I swap out the evaluation version for the licensed version?

To uninstall your evaluation version and replace it with your licensed version follow this procedure:

1. Stop any BizTalk applications and host instances that use ActiveADAPTER

2. Close any instances of the BizTalk Admin Console

3. Uninstall ActiveADAPTER through Control Panel

4. Check that the %ProgramFiles%\ActiveADAPTER folder has been  completely removed

5. Install your licensed software

In most cases this shouldn't affect any receive location or send port settings you have created, but check your BizTalk applications after restarting them.
