2011-03-15 10:59:05,371 INFO  - Samification of User and Group Objects:Finished
Samifying Objects


This issue is resolved with OES11SP1
For OES11 apply the September 2012 Maintenance Patch then rerun the samify task.

The samify task reports an error, but all user and  group objects appear to be
samified.  To verify if a user or group is samified look at the other tab in iManager and see if there is a samaccountname attribute.  If so then the user is samified.

Once DSfW is installed on the server do the following ldapsearch on the DSfW server
LDAPCONF=/etc/opt/novell/xad/openldap/ldap.conf /usr/bin/ldapsearch -Y EXTERNAL
-b "" '(&(objectClass=user)(!(sAMAccountName=*)))' dn:
This search will return all users with out a samaccountname.
You can do the same search for objetclass=group

If a user or group in the domain is not samified modifying the user or using the domaincntrl utility.
To use the domaincntrl utility to samify users first get a kerberos ticket then
kinit administrator
enter the administrators password at the prompt
Then run domaincntrl --samify
Select the container you wish to samify users and groups in.
