An error value of 0x8000500D may be generated when you try to access a property using the Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI).


The value 0x8000500D is found in adserr.h and is defined as E_ADS_PROPERTY_NOT_FOUND. This error can be returned when the Directory Service provider, or underlying Directory Service, does not implement the property being used. Directory Service providers are not required to implement all properties.


This behavior is by design.


Querying the schema entry for the class of the object being used indicates what properties are supported. See the ADSI Design Specification for more information about browsing the schema.
