Unable to get this to work on win2k3r2 even with enterprise admin permissions.

What I have found is this which Im about to try,

1. Use adsiedit.msc to bind to any domain controller.
2. Navigate through
CN=Windows NT
CN=Directory Services
3. Double-click CN=Default Query Policy in the rght-hand pane.
4. Double-click LdapAdminLimits.
5. Select MaxPageSize and press Remove.
6. Modify the limit of MaxPageSize and press Add.
7. Press OK, Apply, and OK.
8. Close ADSI Edit.
9. After replication, the new limit should be available.

adsiedit is part of the ms support tools here,

sounds like you need to upgrade your MaxPageSize and LDAPAdminLimits
attribute of the Default Query Policy object in the Query-Policies
container. We needed to do this to be able to get more than 1000
objects from AD a long time ago.

The details I used back then were here:


cmd.exe -> ntdsutil.exe (on a domain controller)

At the Ntdsutil.exe command prompt, type LDAP policies, and then press ENTER.

show values [enter]
ldap policy: show values

Policy  Current(New)
MaxPoolThreads  4
MaxDatagramRecv         4096
MaxReceiveBuffer        10485760
InitRecvTimeout         120
MaxConnections  5000
MaxConnIdleTime         900
MaxPageSize     1000
MaxQueryDuration        120
MaxTempTableSize        10000
MaxResultSetSize        262144
MaxNotificationPerConn  5
MaxValRange     1500

We want to change MaxPageSize.

First we need to authenticate:
connections [enter]
set creds domain user pwd
connect to domain your.domain

then we got to ldap policy

set MaxPageSize to 2000
