3.9 A Note about Identity Manager 3.6 Bundle Edition

If your organization has more than one directory service that stores user information, you should consider implementing the Novell Identity Manager 3.6 Bundle Edition included with Novell Open Enterprise Server.

The Identity Manager 3.6 Bundle Edition provides licensed synchronization of information (including passwords) held in NT Domains, Active Directory* Domains, and eDirectory trees.

Not only can you import User objects into eDirectory rather than creating them as you have in this section, but you can use Identity Manager to keep all the user data (including passwords that are stored in your different databases) synchronized.

When data from one system changes, Identity Manager detects and propagates these changes to other connected systems based on the business policies you define.

For more information, see Using the Identity Manager 3.6.1 Bundle Edition in the OES 2 SP3: Planning and Implementation Guide.
