Numeric values from AD to Java

I have an issue that I am having difficulty identifying/explaining/articulating. I use an authentcation service in EAServer that provides an interface to AD (Active Directory). I retrieve certain values to do the authentication which is fine and works well, these are all String values.

I am also trying to retrieve a value from AD that indicates the expiration of a password. This number is representative of 100s of nanoseconds from Jan 1, 1601. It seems I can not get these values from AD. It is not an access rights issue.

This is the gist:

The attrId is never retrieved. There is no typo, there are no access right issues ( so they tell me) ...I am woindering if there is a problem converting the Number?

Is this a JNDI issue?
Is this a CORBA (ORB compatibility) issue?

Any ideas whatsoever?
