Discussion

This method uses the IADs interface to locate the user object. The IADs interface is the directory object that represents the user in Active Directory. The IADs object is useful for retrieving Active Directory-specific information, such as the site, for a user.

The method returns the user object as Centrify.DirectControl.API.IUser. You can then use the IUser object to retrieve Centrify-specific information.
