template question

If you create a template and create users using that template and then
change the template, are the changes to the template suppose to filter down
to the users created with that template?

What book? So that we can point out the error. No the template is just
that, a template. It is only applied on creation. It does keep track on
its "children" and acts as a group object in that respect.

Re: template question

Anders, this is from CNA Study Guide for Netware 6 pg 228&229, quoting...

"The Template is a special user-oriented leaf object that enables you to
create and manage a series of user accounts with similar property values.

You can automatically copy the properties of a Template object to a User
object when creating it (via the Use Template check box). This feature
allows global changes (such as a company address or fax number) to be made
in one place and passed on to all User objects created using the Template.

In addition, the Template object maintains a live link with all its
subordinate users. When a change is made to one or more Template object
properties using the Details on Multiple Users option, the change is
copied to all the associated User objects."

Ah yes. But that means that you need to use "Details on Multiple Users",
you cannot just change the template. Ie it acts like a group object.

Re: template question

I just don't know better, any suggestions for better or more complete
texts?

Re: template question

I agree. It depends on how you read it. Perhaps they should have clarified
this better, but it doesn't definitely say the template affects already
created items. :-))

Actually that's one of the tasks of the TechEd (and CopyEd to some
extend) to ensure the text is /clearly/ presented.

Re: template question

Its not your fault. You may want to look at the Admin Handbook series
instead of self-study guides.
