Filr - Not all users imported during LDAP Sync.

This document (7012602) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Filr 1.0


When syncing LDAP users with eDirectory, it does not successfully add all users (even from the same container).
- Users not properly importing.
- Users not being added.


Option A: To resolve this issue manually with iManager, follow these steps for each user that isn't added successfully:
  1. From Roles and Tasks select Directory Administration | Modify Object
  2. Select an individual user object
  3. From the General tab, select Other
  4. Verify that uniqueID is in the Valued Attributes list.
    • If not, add it from the Unvalued Attributes list.
    • Select the + icon to add an item
    • Provide the user's CN or userID and Select OK
    • Select OK
    • Select Apply to save changes

Note: This can also be modified in ConsoleOne from the user's properties | Other tab.

Option B: To batch resolve this with LDIF see NetIQ Cool Solutions - Add missing uniqueID attribute.


Some users are missing the uniqueID in the Valued Attributes list. This could be because the user(s) were created in an older version of eDirectory.
