active directory rootdse

    active directory rootdse

    in vbscript, i did :

    set oroot = getobject("LDAP://rootdse")
    set odomain = getobject("LDAP://" & oroot.get("defaultnamingcontext"))


    In powershell, i hard-code $strBase = "<LDAP://dc=xxx,dc=com>"

    Does powershell have the equivalent of what i stated above for vbscript ?
