Moving users to new server

Hello,

Ok, let's try again. Currently, I have around 80 users on a
NW5.0SP6a server (DS version 7.58, Tree=Recherche, Context=Recherche).
I have bought a new server and installed an upgraded version of netware
to OES (NW6.5SP3, DS version 10552.79, Tree=CRIR-IRM, Context=Recherche)
on it. The volumes structure will be identical. I would like to copy
my current users to the new server. Is there an EASY way to do that. TIA.

Re: Moving users to new server

Did you put the new server in the same or a different tree? If the
later, there's nothing to move except for the user files and any
associated trustee assignments etc. If the former, Migration Wizard
may be an option.

Thanks Peter. It is in a different Tree/Context. The other server will
be remove after the transfer. If I move the files and the trustees from
one server to the other, how will the users/passwords be transferred? TIA.

Re: Moving users to new server

Migration Wizard should be able to help with the password -- otherwise,
there is /no/ way to export a DS/eDir password for reimport into
another tree ... unless you're using Universal Password ...

Re: Moving users to new server

You can copy objects within a tree using C1, but not from tree to tree.

Re: Moving users to new server

ConsoleOne does not allow you to copy between trees. However, an
alternative is to use the ICE Wizard (from ConsoleOne) to export
objects from one tree and import into another (using LDAP, basically).
