Indicates whether the corresponding Active Directory user for a UNIX profile is in a different Active Directory forest than the forest associated with the user’s UNIX profile in the zone.


bool IsForeign {get;}

Property value

Returns true if the UNIX profile is associated with an Active Directory user in a different forest.


If the Active Directory user is in a different forest than the one associated with a top‑level Cims object, the property returns true.


The following code sample illustrates using IsForeign in a script:

'Get the zone object
Set objZone = cims.GetZone("")
'Check the forest for Users in the zone
For each profile in objZone.GetUserUnixProfiles
if profile.IsForeign then
      wScript.Echo “Foreign user: ” & profile.Name
   end if
