Accessing user profile properties for every user of the system, not just he/she whom is logged in.


on application_start i have to refresh the roles and users of a system.  one of the roles is basically created to contain every user who resides inside an active directory group.  Creating the users like this is fine but what i also need to do is have a custom profile property (which has been defined in the web.config) and make that equal to the givenName property of the DirectoryEntry object i got back from AD.

Question is, how do i get access to that property?

to clarify, what i'm essentially trying to do is this-


if (username != null && !Roles.IsUserInRole(username,RoleNames.usersRoleName))


    Profiles.SetProperty(username, "firstName", DirectoryEntry.Properties["givenName"].ToString()); //blatantly pseudocode

You can write a loop like this:

MembershipUserCollection muc = Membership.GetAllUsers();
foreach (MembershipUser mu in muc)
if ((returnAllApprovedUsers==true && mu.IsApproved==true) ||
(returnAllNotApprovedUsers==true && mu.IsApproved==false))
MembershipUserWrapperForMP md =
  new MembershipUserWrapperForMP(mu);
ProfileCommon pc = (ProfileCommon)ProfileBase.Create
  (mu.UserName, true);
md.FirstName = pc.FirstName;
md.LastName = pc.LastName;
md.AdvancedMode = pc.AdvancedMode;
md.Address_Street = pc.Address.Street;
md.Address_City = pc.Address.City;
md.Address_State = pc.Address.State;
md.Address_Zip = pc.Address.Zip;

User logs in, loads another users profile.
I hope i'm posting in the correct place, I'm not sure if this is an AD issue or a Novell client issue, or ConsoleOne. User A logs into windows XP with the correct user name and password, it logs him in but loads User B's profile. Both users have never logged into the computer so it's not loading a cached profile, it always loads users B's profile, doesn't matter which computer. If user B logs in it is fine. I checked both users profiles in AD and ConsoleOne and all seems to be set correctly. We do not use roaming profiles, nor do we use terminal se...
