How to export NDS information to a database


Novell Directory Services


Formerly TID 2932641


Novell used to sell the software OIMPORT and OEXPORT.  This utility pulled information out of ds and put it in a file that database programs could import.

As of 10/27/99 this product is no longer supported. It is not Y2K compatible. An alternate solution to export NDS information is to use the Novell Import/Export Utility more commonly known as ICE.  This utility is LDAP based and comes packaged with eDirectory 8.5.  ICE allows you to use LDAP and export NDS information to an LDIF format.

For more information on ICE and how to use it, See AppNote: Using the Novell Import Convert Export Utility; Posted 01 Oct 2000.
