I have a question for anybody who is using VB.NET and ASP.NET 1.1 as a front end to a Legacy IMS System. We currently are using IMSConnect to achieve this. One major flaw with IMSConnect is that when a user tries to sign on using their RACF userid and
RACF password, we get the same return message from IMSConnect whether the user's password has expired, revoked, incorrect syntax, etc.
I have heard you can make LDAP calls to retrieve meaningful RACF information like Password messages.
Chapter 18 in IBM Manuals "LDAP Server Administration and Use, SC24-5923" provides the error codes (Password, expired, userid revoked, etc)
http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/epubs/pdf/glda2a31.pdf look at table 39.
Has anyone currently implemented such a solution using .NET. I would be very grateful if anyone could share some insight or code examples on how to get those return messages back to the Web Application.
I have been scanning the other LDAP threads to learn more about DirectoryServices and how to do a LDAP search, but because RACF is involved I am not sure if i can use any of that code

Anyone out there using LDAP/RACF for signon messages?
Or anyone using IMSCONNECT and using another method to retrieve meaningful password messages. Password expired, Password revoked, etc...
Any help would be great.
