6.6 Additional Steps for Tree-to-Tree Consolidations

If you are moving objects from one tree to another, the Tree-to-Tree Object Match Up dialog box now displays. If you are not moving objects between trees, proceed to Section 6.7, Run the Consolidation.

6.6.1 Tree-to-Tree Object Match Up

All trustees of copied data that appear in both the source and destination trees are displayed in the Tree-to-Tree Object Match Up dialog box based on their category. These trustees are discovered during the Check for Trustees and Ownership step and are saved in the project database.

This screen allows you to match the trustee names found on the source server with trustees from the destination server. If an appropriate match does not exist, you can create an object on the destination server that matches the object name from the source server. You can also browse to an existing object in the destination tree and match it up with the source server object name.

IMPORTANT:If you are consolidating to an Nterprise Branch Office Appliance, see Section 6.10, Consolidating Data to Novell Branch Office now.

  1. Select the type of objects to display from the drop-down list provided in the Tree-to-Tree Object Match Up dialog box.

  2. Check the box to the left of the object you want to match up.

    To select more than one object, press and hold the Ctrl key while checking the box to the left of the objects that you want to select. You can also check the box to the left of one object, press and hold the Shift key, then check the box to the left of a second object to select those two objects and all other objects located between them in the list.

    1. (Conditional) If you selected more than one object, right-click on the selected objects and then select Create All Selected Objects.

    2. (Optional) If you want to create objects for all of the selected objects, select Yes.

    3. To select the container that the objects will be created in, click Browse.

    4. Click OK.

    5. To unmatch more than one object, select the desired objects, right-click the objects, and then select Unmatch All Selected Objects.

  3. From the drop-down menu under the Destination Object heading, select the option you want:

    • The object in the destination tree that has the same name as the object in the source tree

    • Don’t match (object doesn’t exist in the destination tree)

    • Browse

    • Create

  4. (Conditional) If you selected Browse in Step 3, do the following in the Context Browser dialog box:

    1. Select a matching object.

    2. Click OK.

  5. (Conditional) If you selected Create in Step 3, do the following in the Object Creation dialog box:

    1. To browse to the container that the new object will be created in, click Browse.

    2. Select the container.

    3. Click OK.

    4. Type the new object’s name in the field provided, then click OK.

    5. Repeat Step 5.d for each object you want to create.

      NOTE:When the Server Consolidation Utility creates a new user, it assigns a random password to that user. The username and the randomly assigned password are written to the success log. This log file can be viewed after the consolidation completes.

      The Server Consolidation Utility allows you to create groups if they don’t already exist in the destination tree and it adds the users that are members of the source group to the new destination group. However, it does not modify an existing group. If you use the utility to create a group in the destination tree and then add additional members to the source tree's group, those added members are not added to the destination group. Also, if you choose to create the groups manually (on the destination) rather than using the Server Consolidation Utility, and then you attempt to match up the groups during the consolidation, the group members are not transferred.

  6. When you have finished matching all the objects, click Next.

  7. (Conditional) If you have unmatched objects, do one of the following in the Unmatched Objects dialog box that displays:

    • To proceed without matching the objects, select Yes.

    • To go back and match up the objects before continuing, select No.

6.6.2 Default Server and Home Directory for Created Users

In the Default Server and Home Directory for Created Users dialog box, you have the option to assign a default server for all created users. The default server is the server the user gets a connection to during login if the user doesn’t request a connection to a specific server. It's also the server used if the user makes a network request without naming the server, and it's the server the user still has an attachment to after logging out.

You can also assign a parent directory for any created user's home directory. A home directory is an optional, single-valued property that specifies the location (volume and path) and name for the user's working area on the server.

  1. (Conditional) If you want to assign a default server for all created users, click the first Browse button.

  2. Select a server from the tree.

  3. Click OK.

  4. (Conditional) If you want to assign a parent directory for any created user’s home directory, click the second Browse button.

  5. Select a directory from the tree.

  6. Click OK > Next.
