How can I connect to Novell eDirectory using the eDirectory MA RRS feed

  • General discussion

    ILM allows you to connect to most (if not all) versions of eDirectory. There are however some steps you need to perform:

    • In ConsoleOne, set "Enable old ADSI and netscape schema output" on the LDAP server object.
    • For recent versions of eDirectory, add the version of eDirectory to the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\miiserver\Parameters\eDirectoryMASupportedServers key in the registry. You find your version in the vendorVersion attribute of the RootDSE (e.g. : LDAP Agent for Novell eDirectory 8.8 SP2 (20216.46)). This technique is confirmed to work at least since build 3.3.1118.02 of ILM 2007 FP1.

    Note: the same technique applies for FIM, however, the key to be used is FIMSynchronizationService instead of miiserver.
