Hi,
I have the following domain structure, where A as the root domain, B, C and
D as child domains underneath A . I'm trying to export user information of
domain B and D using a single, custom CSVDE query. My CSVDE query is run
against a GC in domain B. But the exported list does not contain users from
domain D it conatins user info only from domain B, which defeats the concept
of GC.

If i run tve CSVDE query against a GC in domain D the exported list contain
users from domain D only not users in domain B.

However if I run the same CSVDE query against a GC in root domain, the
exported list contains users in both domains B and D.

I'm unsure why the query failed at the child domain ie at domain B.

The query is as follows,

csvde -f c:\output\ldf.csv -s serverGC01 -t 3268 -l
"DN,objectClass,distinguishedName" -r
"(&(objectCategory=group)(extensionAttribute11=*ou=S-Americas-AB*))"

Regards,
Swamy
