    Hi Nickolaj,

    Thank you very much for this! I noticed that several of the methods I’ve tried to use involving users return nothing or time out. For example, OSD FrontEnd 1.1.2 crashes in a boot image when I enter a username, click apply and it searches for a unique user name for several seconds. Additionally, GetCMPrimaryUserByDevice returns the correct value, but GetCMPrimaryDeviceByUser times out.

    I’ve tried making the application pool identity a full administrator in ConfigMgr and encounter the same issue, so I don’t think the account is limited in terms of permissions.

    Do you have any suggestions as to how I could troubleshoot this?

    Thank you,

    Jordan

    Hi Nickolaj!

    Great work! Something I noticed is that “RemoveADComputerFromGroup” do not work if there is more than 1500 members of the Group. If member Count drop below 1500, it returns true and the computer is removed from the group.

    It looks like the function GetCMPrimaryDeviceByUser filters by the wrong parameter. The query is identical to the one used in GetCMPrimaryUserByDevice and yelds the same result.

    Solution: Change the query from “WHERE ResourceName” to “WHERE UniqueUserName”?
