questions about deploying universal password

Running OES 11 - servers at eDir 8.8.7 Patch 2 or 3.
Have one Netware server still at eDir 8.7.3 SP10 FTF2

I've been reading through the
docs...https://www.netiq.com/documentation/password_management33/pwm_administration/data/bqeipm5.html

I'm not sure from the docs how to confirm that my security container
is properly available as mentioned in Step 3. I have a fairly simple
tree.

tree
-- org
-- ou1
-- ou2
--security container

Most users are in ou1 or ou2. Each ou coincides with a physical
office location. Admin type accounts are in the org. Five servers,
70 users, one partition for the tree.

Is there anything special I need to do to the security container to
prep it for Universal Password?

Regards,
Ken

Re: questions about deploying universal password

You're probably fine as is, but worst case make sure a replica of whatever
partition holds the cn=Security container is present on your 8.7.x box.
The 8.8.x boxes should be fine as is, but having replicas there of
cn=security is not a bad idea, especially if cn=security is its own
partition and your tree has a lot (dozens or more) of servers. If all of
the servers already hold a copy of the cn=securty container somehow (as a
replica of its own partition or by holding the tree root) then you're ready.

Good luck.
