IMPORTANT:With the release of Storage Manager 5.0, Micro Focus began providing the eDirectory to Active Directory Cross-Empire Data Migration and the new Active Directory to Active Directory Cross-Empire Data Migration subsystems only as additive support pack purchases to Storage Manager.
For example, if you wanted to migrate user data from OES to Microsoft, you would need to purchase licenses for Storage Manager 5.x for Active Directory + the eDirectory to Active Directory Cross-Empire Data Migration support pack.
If you do not have the additional support pack licenses, the Cross-Empire Data Migration options in SMAdmin are disabled.
eDirectory to Active Directory Cross-Empire Data Migration is a for-purchase add-on subsystem for Storage Manager that allows for the movement of file system data from the Novell or Micro Focus NSS network file system and eDirectory directory service, to the Microsoft NTFS network file system and Active Directory directory service.
Many customer initiatives can precipitate the need for such a move, including a migration to a different server operating system, a merger and acquisition by the organization, or just the consolidation of environments.
