The NSM Engine running in Active Directory uses a migration proxy account to log in to the eDirectory tree. Any time you perform a migration from the eDirectory tree to the Active Directory domain, NSMAdmin uses the migration proxy account that you establish in this procedure.
IMPORTANT:This process creates a new User object in Novell eDirectory with a 32-character password that is generated automatically by Novell Storage Manager. If your Universal Password policy does not accommodate 32-character passwords, you must modify or create a new Universal Password policy before proceeding. For more information, refer to Section 3.4, “Creating Password Policies,” in the Novell Password Management 3.3.1 Administration Guide, especially the information in Figure 3.3, “Advanced Password Rules Continued.”

Fill in the following fields:
Default source Server Address: Specify the IP address or DNS name of a server in the eDirectory tree where the files you want to migrate are located. The NSM Engine in the Active Directory environment must be able to communicate with this server when performing data migrations.
Migration Proxy Account: Provision a migration proxy account by specifying the typeless fully distinguished name (FDN) of the proxy account that you want to provision.
The NSM Engine running in Active Directory uses the migration proxy account to log in to the eDirectory tree. Any time you perform a migration from the eDirectory tree to the Active Directory domain, the NSM Engine uses the migration proxy account that you establish in this step.
Admin Name: Specify the typeless FDN of an account in the source eDirectory tree that has the appropriate right to provision the Migration Proxy Account (MPA).
Password: Specify the password for the typeless FDN provided above.
The information entered in the Provision Migration Proxy Account dialog box is now displayed in the fields of the Data Migration page.
The NSM Engine logs in as the Admin account provided, and provisions the MPA as a User object in the source eDirectory tree. It also grants the MPA object full rights to the root of the source tree, which allows Novell Storage Manager to pull eDirectory and file system information during the course of migration operations.
