Commits any changes or updates to the User object and saves the changes to Active Directory.


void Commit()


When you use this method, it checks and validates the data before saving it in Active Directory.


Commit may throw one of the following exceptions:

  • ApplicationException if any field in the UNIX profile is not valid.
  • COMException if an LDAP error occurs. LDAP errors can occur if the connection to the LDAP server fails, the connection times out, invalid credentials are presented, or there are other problems communicating with Active Directory.
  • UnauthorizedAccessException if you have insufficient access rights to commit changes to the Active Directory object.


The following code sample illustrates using Commit in a script:

'Get the zone object
Set objZone = cims.GetZone("")
'Get the user object
set objUser = cims.GetUserByPath("LDAP://,CN=Users, DC=ajax,DC=org")
'Add the UNIX profile for the user
set objUserUnixProfile = objUser.AddUnixProfile(objZone, 623, "pat_hu", "/bin/bash", "/home/pat_hu", 623)
'Enable the user’s UNIX profile
objUserUnixProfile.UnixEnabled = True
'Update Active Directory
