User migration

    Question

  • Users in sub-containers don't migrate in corresponding containers. They are all rolled up in parent container. Eg.

    OU=A
    ...sub OU=B
    ......User1
    ......User2
    ...sub OU=C
    ......User3
    ......User4

    When I run the user migration utility, all (4) users are imported. But they all appear under parent OU=A instead of their individual sub OU's. So their DNs, etc change.
    Must each sub OU be created b4 the migration will work properly?

  • Sorry... ADMT. I've looked for others since ADMT was very difficult to get working (especially the password migration piece). But the only other one I found was QMM & I thought I'd get better support with AD from MS. I also just came across your blog/website & will review your doc. Thanks in advance.

  • Regardless... I'm using ADMT & still can't get the objects to import into the proper containers. Does each OU/sub-OU need to be created manually before the user import will work? That would be very time-consuming.

  • No, Just create a test user & you will be able to see all the OU in the target domains in the ADMT console.

  • I've just tested - even with the appropriate OUs created, the users STILL get dumped into the container designated by the DN of the target OU. It doesn't appear you can do what I want to do - use ADMT to put the users in the corresponding target OU. As my initial diagram shows:

    OU=A
    ...sub OU=B
    ......User1
    ......User2
    ...sub OU=C
    ......User3
    ......User4

    If I want to migrate all users in source domain OU=A (could be hundreds or thousands), and even if I manually create OU=B & C in the target domain, I can only enter a single DN of the target OU. If I select the DN for OU=A, all the users get dumped there. If I select the DN for OU=B or C, they all get dumped there. I would think based on the source DN, the tool would be able to determine which OU to put User1 vs User3.

    I would think this would be an issue for anyone using this tool that doesn't have a completely flat domain/OU structure. Isn't anyone else having this issue?
