The easiest method for adding multiple users to the tree is to do this via LDAP. Export the branch of the tree using ICE to get an LDIF file containing just the cn. This should be done using the following command

ice -lIFUexprt1.log -eErrIFUExp.ldif -SLDAP -s1127.0.0.1 -p389 -dcn=admin,o=org -wpassword -bou=users,ou=location,o=org -csub -m -Fobjectclass=person -acn -t -DLDIF -fIFUser.ldif -B

This will give you an LDIF file called IFUser.ldif with user entries that look like:

dn: cn=dguest,ou=Users,ou=location,o=org
changetype: modify
add: cn
cn: dguest

Edit this file and replace the

add: cn
cn: dguest


add: objetClass
objectClass: iFolderUser
add: iFolderServer
iFolderServer: iFolder_Server_01
add: iFolderQuota
iFolderQuota: 200

This can be done using a global search and replace in a text editor, or through sed.

Then import the file to your server using the ICE command:

ice -lIFUImp1.log -eIFUimperr.ldif -SLDIF -fIFUser.ldif -a -c -DLDAP -s127.0.0.1 -p389 -dcn=admin,o=org -wpassword -v

Obviously you will have to edit the IP address, username and password to match your own service. But this will allow all the selected users to be added to iFolder quickly and easily.
