Unable to set ms-TS-Max-Idle-Time LDAP attribute from script

Regular Visitor

I need help with an LDAP attribute that I’m trying to assign for adding a new AD user.


I’m using the following Python script for adding a new user and everything works as expected:


# sample attributes
ldap_attr = {}
ldap_attr['objectClass'] = ['top', 'person' , 'organizationalPerson' , 'user' ]
ldap_attr['cn'] = user_username
ldap_attr['givenName'] = user_firstname
ldap_attr['sn'] = user_lastname
ldap_attr['uid'] = user_username
ldap_attr['sAMAccountName'] = user_username
ldap_attr['mail'] = user_email
ldap_attr['telephoneNumber'] = user_phonenumber
ldap_attr['userPrincipalName'] = f"{user_username}@{ad_domain}"
ldap_attr['displayName'] = f"{user_firstname} {user_lastname}"
ldap_attr['scriptPath'] = 'sto.bat'
ldap_attr['msTSMaxDisconnectionTime'] = 1
ldap_attr['msTSMaxIdleTime'] = 120
ldap_attr['msTSReconnectionAction'] = True

However, the following attributes listed in that script aren’t being added to that user related to Terminal Service:

- msTSMaxDisconnectionTime
- msTSMaxIdleTime
- msTSReconnectionAction

I’m using the correct LDAP name and value type based on the supported Microsoft documentation.


I’m not sure if there is anything that needs to be set on the AD domain controller itself or anything I need to define differently within my script. But any help is much appreciated because I’m unable to find any results related to my issue.
