Deal with Home and Collaborative Folders when Users Leave
Automate the transition of home directories when employees leave the company
Agile organizations understand that when an employee leaves an organization, a plan for transitioning the employee's work needs to be in place before the departure. A departing employee's network home directory is normally the principle repository for project documents, meeting notes, proposals, engineering code, legal papers, etc. that oftentimes need transitioned right away.
Novell Storage Manager lets you set up policies for automating the transition of home directories of employees that leave the organization. You can configure rules to automatically delete the storage, vault it to a another storage area, defer the cleanup of storage for a set number of days, or queue the storage to a defined manager where the directory contents can be reviewed and if necessary, reassigned by the manager.
When Storage Manager sees that a "Delete User Event" has taken place in eDirectory™ or Microsoft Active Directory, it will refer to the policy that you set up earlier that defines what actions to take when a user in that role departs the organization.
A powerful feature of Storage Manager offering flexibility in the transition of intellectual property is the ability to create an inactive users policy. When established, the policy can move the home directory contents of a departing employee to another location and automatically remove the rights to the storage.
When a replacement in the organization is hired, the inactive home directory can then be made "active" again and reassigned to the new employee.
