moving ou

i need to juggle our ds around a bit to allow a mirror sync for a part
with AD via idm
in order to do this i need to move an ou
the ou is a partition and has three copies of the replica
the ou contains the usual stuff

users
groups
groupwise postoffice
ndps broker
ndps manager

can you forsee any problems moving this. the clients are contextless and
we are going to force a nal first to fix any reg or dodgey client settings

moving ou

If I remember correctly, you need to merge that container partition back
into the parent partition before moving it around. Then after its been
moved, depending on your structure, you can re-partition the container.

You don't 🙂 In fact you have it completely backwards; an OU must be a
partition root to be able to be moved.

Re: moving ou

As long as timesync and ds sync are healthy in your tree then this will
not be a problem as far as DS itself goes. Having as few different
versions of DS in your tree as possible is also adviseable.

For GW you'd need to ask in the GW forums, but in general it doesn't
care much about DS.

GW doesn't care too much about it. If it screwes up just graft it.
