Hi..
Im trying to get some information out of a windows sever 2003 chinese
active directory system
so let's say encoding is probably big5 or utf-8

what im doing is simliar to ldapsearch in shell with my python script
using python ldap module

the result is not the correct encoding..

i've look many places and tried many different encoding on the top of
the script #coding=big5 etc..

below is the wrong encoding output .. any help will be much
appreciated..

The Unicode encoding of LDAP attributes with syntax Directory String is
always UTF-8 (e.g. attributes 'cn', 'sn', 'givenName' or 'displayName').

What exactly did you expect?
'cn': ['\xe6\xb1\x9f\xe6\x9f\x8f\xe5\xa3\x95'],
u'\u6c5f\u67cf\u58d5'

I cannot tell whether this Unicode string of length 3 is correct since I
cannot read Chinese and I probably don't have the necessary fonts
installed. At least it decodes as UTF-8 which is correct at the LDAP level.
'displayName': ['\xe6\xb1\x9f\xe6\x9f\x8f\xe5\xa3\x95'],
u'\u6c5f\u67cf\u58d5'

Maybe you should provide the original Unicode string (e.g. in Python
syntax) and tell us how you store that into your AD server. Note that
the tools used to maintain AD are also part of the game.

Ciao, Michael.

BTW: I'd be curious to see whether my web2ldap works with Chinese
characters. Since you already have python-ldap installed it's easy to
download (from http://www.web2ldap.de/download.html) and unpack the
tar.gz and start it as stand-alone web server:

python <web2ldap-dir>/sbin/web2ldap.py -d off

Ah forgot, pyweblib needs to also be installed with usual
python setup.py install:
http://www.stroeder.com/pylib/PyWebLib/

If everything is correctly configured in your browser you should the
correct Unicode chars. Maybe you can even maintain your AD entries.

Ciao, Michael.
