Default Directory server import

Hi list

Does anyone know if there is a simple way to import standard linux users
into the directory server? I have found some but they don't seem to be so
flexible since I have to import from several servers into different ou's

Regards
Per Qvindesland

a good toolkit for doing this is here:

http://www.padl.com/OSS/MigrationTools.html

there's a config file which you modify to specify target LDAP server,
base DN, and various other details for each import. one good way to
use them is the following:


1. generate NIS maps (yes, i know, yuck) for the users you're importing.
2. run the PADL tools to generate a big LDIF of all the users.
3. import the generated LDIF.

Hi

Thanks for replying.

I have been looking at this one, I have only 2 problems with it:

1. Generate Nis maps I believe that this should be the command nismap create
-i 1 -g " " -y auto.master but i am unsure if this is correct for my
exercise since I need to generate for multiple ou, could someone please give
an example?

2. it says on the migration tool that I need to change the $NSHOME and
$serverId to make it compatible to the Netscape but do I have been looking
around I still can not find where these variabels are declared, does anyone
have a clue or some experience with these script?

Kind regards
Per Qvindesland
