A.1 Using Identity Manager to Copy User Objects to Another eDirectory Tree

The procedures explained in this section are normally performed after completing Installing and Configuring Identity Manager.

The Identity Manager eDirectory driver has a synchronization feature that copies objects that exist in one tree to another tree where they don’t exist. For business continuity clusters, this feature can be used to copy User objects from one cluster to another cluster in a separate eDirectory tree. For example, if you have one tree that has 10,000 users and a second new tree that does not yet have users defined, you can use Identity Manager to quickly copy the 10,000 users to the new tree.

For more information on copying User objects by using Identity Manager, see Migrating or Copying User Objects in the Identity Manager Driver for eDirectory Implementation Guide.
