Selection commands

The ADEdit object select commands have the form select_xxx where xxx is an object type. When you select an object (select_zone, for example), ADEdit looks for the object specified in Active Directory and retrieves it to store the object in the current context.

Each select command is tailored to the type of object it retrieves. As an example, after binding to acme.com, you can use a get_zones command to list the zones in the bound domain, then use a select_zone command to select the zone you want to work with:

>get_zones acme.com
{CN=default,CN=Zones,CN=Centrify,CN=Program Data,DC=acme,DC=com}
{CN=cz1,CN=Zones,CN=Centrify,CN=Program Data,DC=acme,DC=com}
{CN=cz2,CN=Zones,CN=Centrify,CN=Program Data,DC=acme,DC=com}
{CN=global,CN=Zones,CN=Centrify,CN=Program Data,DC=acme,DC=com}
>select_zone {CN=global,CN=Zones,CN=Centrify,CN=Program Data,DC=acme,DC=com}

As this example illustrates, each zone is list by its distinguished name (DN) and you use the distinguished name to identify the zone you want to use.
