NSM 31 for AD and user managment

Hello,

We use NSM on eDir since 2006!

Now I am testing NSM 3.1 for AD.

I prepared a User Home Folder Policy attached to the Organisation Unit
where the users will be created, like we do on eDir.

1) I use Active Directory Users and Computers to create a new user. The
home folder is only created if I choose manage in Users Actions (With
eDir, the home folder is immediately created).

2) I move the user from one Organisation Unit to un other one (with a
home folder Policy). The home folder is only moved if I choose manage in
Users Actions (With eDir, the home folder is immediately moved).

3) I rename an user : the home folder is never renamed. It is very annoying!
4) I delete an user : the home folder is never deleted. It is very very
very annoying!

Did I forget something?
Thank's

CM

basics first:
do u have the NSM Event servers Authorized and running? (same for Agent
servers) as NSM seems to loose the events..
What is the event count for your Event server?


It should do all these automatic, as on eDir.

Thank's a lot Sami.

The Event server whas not Authorized. For the tests we have only 1 Event
server and 1 Agent Server all on the main 2008R2 server with the Engine
Server.

I created a new user and the home folder is automatically created.
I moved a user and the home folder is automatically moved.
I rename a user and the home folder is automatically rename.
I delete a user and the home folder is delete.

Catherine,

Like Sami said, you'll need authorize the Event Monitor. Looks like once
you authorized that component, everything's working, correct?

One important difference between the Event Monitors on AD vs.
eDirectory, since you've recently switched: In eDirectory we recommended
having two Event Monitors per eDir partition. In Active Directory, it's
important that you only have one Event Monitor per AD domain you're
managing storage and users in; more than that, and you'll get duplicate
events.

As always, let us know if you've any further questions!
