For those cases where converting from Base64 encoded data to a hexadecimal output similar to what you get from other utilities this script may simplify your life. The script takes input and decodes it finally converting it to hex output for use in other applications.

My company needed a way that users at the different branches could still function and perform their duties, even when the local branch server was down. The following should at least let you begin thinking about how this could be handled.

The Identity Manager Remote Loader is used to load a driver shim separately from the IDM engine which may be running multiple drivers. The Remote Loader, though, is often seen as the exception to the rule when in fact it should be the rule with a few exceptions.

Over the past couple of months, I have been involved with migrating remote NetWare servers to Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES2) Linux. During this time, there are some lessons that have been learned that hopefully this article will be able to help you, the reader, perform your own migrations more smoothly and avoid some of the pitfalls we encountered.

Once in a while an issue comes up where application A gives some odd errors in eDirectory but those errors seem to be cosmetic as application A is still fine and works (unless you count the messages in ndstrace). What does this mean when you see a -714 from eDirectory while tracing LDAP that is talking about some "iterator"? What does an LDAP error 51 mean when everything still seems to return properly? Today I am going to try to share some information on Virtual List Views (VLV) by explaining what they are, how you can use them, and a few cases where they do not work with eDirectory.
