Do you remember how several years ago I added to AdFind the ability to display the parent of the object you searched for? Microsoft finally added that ability as well for any LDAP query as of Windows Server 2012 R2 and ADLDS for Windows 8.1/Windows Server 2012 R2. The attribute is called msDS-parentdistname.

That being said this switch should probably […]
