Hi I've done some research on this matter but can't find a real answer for this: The company needs to sync a user table with the active directory. We are using LDAP from a Oracle database to connect to the AD. Ok at first didn't sound hard BUT then researching how the Ad was organized it got complicated. The structure is at follows:

Active Directory Users and Computers
   +Saved Queries
   -Company.org
      -OrganizationalUnit(root this is where we start)
          -OU folder Regions
             +OU folder Computers
             -OU folder Users
                +Users we need
      +Other Stuff

The problem is the subtree its divided on Organizational units nested on organizational units. I've tried different approaches and as far as I have got is to list the OU Users Names, NOT the users instead, and list the OU of regions too. Just need a point in the right directions.

Ok i solved my issue,
 
Active Directory Users and Computers  
   +Saved Queries
   -Company.org
      -OrganizationalUnit <-----Starting Position
          -OU folder Regions
             +OU folder Computers
             -OU folder Users
                +Users we need
      +Other Stuff


Aparently using the DBMS_LDAP.SCOPE_SUBTREE it let me browse through all my starting position and all in between. Just had to tweak the filter to provide the users, its final form was:
(&(&(objectCategory=user)(objectClass=user)(memberOf=*)(samaccountname='||LDAP_USER||')))

Finally i got PL/SQL procedure that searches the Active Directory and updates the users table with a valid AD email :)
