Checking your MS Dynamics AX users against Active Directory domain resolution

In this blog post I’d like to present the following X++ scipt which you may run as a job if you like. The purpose of this script is to go through all of your users in the MS Dynamics AX security system and check if their SID can be successfully resolved against your Active Directory (AD) domain.
In case there should be an issue you will receive an infolog message which lists the affected users.

  xAxaptaUserManager axUsrMgr;

  UserInfo userInfo;
  str userID;
  str domainName;
  str userSid;

  axUsrMgr = new xAxaptaUserManager();
  while select * from userInfo where userInfo.enable == true
    userID = userInfo.networkAlias;
    domainName = userInfo.networkDomain;
    accountType = userInfo.accountType;
      axUsrDet = axUsrMgr.getSIDFromName(userID, domainName, accountType);
      info(domainName + ‘\\’ + userId + ‘: caused an exception’);
