Novell consultant Raymon Epping has been heads down in the Netherlands experimenting with DirXML 1.1, eDirectory 8.6.2, and Windows XP Professional. Here's a DirXML stylesheet he's written that keeps all three of these new technologies singing in harmony.

I've installed both DirXML 1.1 and eDirectory 8.6.2 on my system and am using the default driver that is delivered with DirXML 1.1 (the Delimited Text-File driver).

I also created a stylesheet called ETS that I've placed in the Publisher channel.

The ETS stylesheet does the following:

  • Creates users based on an input file that is located in c:\csvsample\input.
    File must be .CSV and contain the following fields:
    LastName,FirstName,Title,Email,WorkPhone,Fax,WirelessPhone,Description
  • The ETS will check the eDirectory for the uniqueness of the user that is to be created.
  • If the user to be created is found, a message will appear in in DStrace.
  • If the user to be created is not found, an object will be created with the e-mail address as a password.

The stylesheet is well commented and works fine on my test systems.
