I'm writing a web-app that is required to present users with a login screen.

Users can enter username/password and select a domain from a dropdown list.

how to enumerate all available domains in the server's AD forest even before user login after basic authentication? I came to know that it should be coded in Application_Start. But dont know how and what to do?

Here is my login web form which should authenticate in Active Directory

        <legend>Log in Form</legend>
                @Html.LabelFor(m => m.UserName)
                @Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.UserName)
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(m => m.UserName)
                @Html.LabelFor(m => m.Password)
                @Html.PasswordFor(m => m.Password)
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(m => m.Password)
        <input type="submit" value="Log in" />

how to give here with a dropdown list under user name and password and should populate with list of all available domains...?

Please guide me..

Kindest Regards

Can you post the code that you have currently to get all available domains from servers AD forrest? You say you've got it implemented in your Application_Start but it would have to be in the controller and returned using a model to your view...not your app_start method.

Domain domain = Domain.GetDomain(new DirectoryContext(DirectoryContextType.Domain, "yourDomain", "username", "password"));

Forest forest = domain.Forest;

DomainCollection domains = forest.Domains;

this is the code that enumerate domains from AD.. But how to place this code in MVC approach and how to link it to html dropdownlist helper..
