I actually am currently doing some AD interaction to pull E2k server
names, add 'Organizational Units' and users.  What are you trying to
search for??

I realize that most of you may be using Python on Linux, and I'd like to
keep it there, but I just can't.  I've decided to use Python because of
its platform independence and I want to learn a language that I can use
on Windows, Linux and even OS X.

My current project is to build a user-friendly website that allows
school secretaries to enter information about a new student and have it
create a user account for them in Active Directory.  It'll also need to
allow some employees to reset student user accounts.
After that I'd like to add pages that allow any user on the school
district's network to change their own password.

The environment is almost 50/50 Windows and Mac, and I'm introducing
some Linux in for advanced systems.  For now, Active Directory is my
LDAP provider and I have my Mac OS X server authenticating from it.

If there is anyone that has specific experience using Python to manage
Active Directory objects (particularly doing searches) I'd really like
to get some assistance from you.
