Dim RootDSE AsNew DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry("LDAP://RootDSE")

Dim DomainDN AsString = RootDSE.Properties("DefaultNamingContext").Value

Dim ADEntry AsNew DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" & DomainDN)

Dim ADSearch As New System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher(ADEntry)
Dim ADSearchResult As System.DirectoryServices.SearchResult

ADSearch.Filter = ("(samAccountName=" & UserID & ")")
ADSearch.SearchScope = SearchScope.Subtree

Dim UserFound As SearchResult = ADSearch.FindOne()
If Not IsNothing(UserFound) Then
MsgBox(UserFound.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties.Item("name").Value)
End If

End Function
