Moving users and the GroupWise Network ID/Distinguished Name


Hi all,

I thought I had user moves in the bag with IdM (see link below for
history), but I've come across a common problem.

http://forums.novell.com/netiq/netiq-product-discussion-forums/identity-manager/im-engine-drivers/450941-application-attribute-move-user.html

When I move my users via IdM, GroupWise loses track of where they are
and, therefore, they cannot login. It's the common LDAP Error 32 - No
such object. The only two fixes I am aware of are to manually
disassociate then associate the accounts or enter a FQDN in the LDAP
Authentication of the user under the GroupWise Tab (not sure if I've got
this latter to work, tho there are TIDS that say it's a solution). I
understand how C1 plugins manage these moves for and sync the GW
location attribute(s) to the eDir user DN.

I'm wondering if there is a simple fix and what your thoughts might be?
In my case, I have about 8,000 accounts that aren't in IdM. I'm moving
them to a scoped OU using C1 for IdM to see and sort them based on
certain attributes. It's this second stage where their accounts get
broken and I have to manually associate them with GroupWise (GW). I
suspect it's the GW Network ID and/or Distinguished Name attributes that
aren't updated and I would love to know of some way to update them
globally, even it was some wonky LDIF import (tho I suspect I can't do
that to a GW DB) or something. This is a one-time deal, i.e., new
accounts are created in IdM. It's the 8K older accounts I need to bring
into the fold.

A little more info.: These student accounts are spread across 6 Post
Offices.

Thanking you for any insights you may have!

You need the IDM driver for GroupWise. It handles <move> events in
eDirectory, updating the GW database with the new information.

OK. I already have a GW driver for new accounts that are created
through IdM and has a default Post Office, 1 of 4 PO's on the same GW
server. Would I need to create a separate driver for each ohe the
remaining 3 Post Offices and with 3 Remote Loaders on the same box.

Thanks

So you need to migrate your pre-existing users, so that the GW driver
knows what to do with them.

No, one GW driver is sufficient. You just need to make a better
Subscriber Placement rule if you want the users in more than one post
office. And a good Subscriber Matching rule so that your migrate matches
up the existing users correctly.
