If you are looking for a way to either search or search & replace login scripts for users, organization containers, org units, templates, and profiles in NDS, you should take a look at this new free tool. Very useful for big migration projects.

NDS Login Script Editor will search the NDS tree below a specified container looking for a user-specified search string contained in a login script. It will search login scripts contained in users, templates, profiles, org units, and organization objects. If the user desires, it will also replace instances of the search string with another character string. The installation has been tested on Windows 2000, XP, and 98.

This tool was created when we migrated from NetWare 5 to NetWare 6. As part of this migration, user data was moved from one server in the tree to another. After this was done, we next had to modify every login script, which obviously is time consuming to do and led to the creation of this program.

Instructions for how to use it are contained in the readme.txt which is copied into the program's installation directory.
