Exporting and Restoring AD people entries to support testing

Postby Liazat » Sun Nov 08, 2015 1:09 pm

I thought i had posted this. As a new joiner I am not sure if the forum is moderated so my original may get appear, apologies if that is the case.

We bought Administrator because , having spoken to support at Softerra, it sounded as if it could do what I need. :D Now I need to work out how :-? ...

I need to'Backup' people details from AD in order that I can roll-back to a known point, I think export will enable me to have a 'backup'
[list=][*]What attrobutes shoud I export in addition to those data items I am interested in in order to enable import?
[*]Does import allow me to update existing records, rather than create new?
[*]How do I identify only people?
[*]Can I also use import to apply bulk corrections, and if so what attribute is required to identify the records in question?
[*]If I can't use Administrator in this way what can I use?
[/list]

Thank you............................... liz

Hello Liz,

According to your questions:
> What attributes should I export in addition to those data items I am interested in order to enable import?
It depends. Usually, if you have problems with Import, you need to check 'Exclude SAM attributes' option in the Import Data Wizard - Document Extra Options page.
> Does import allow me to update existing records, rather than create new?
Yes, of course. There is an option 'Update existing objects' option in the Import Data Wizard - Document Extra Options page.
> How do I identify only people?
When you perform an export operation, you can define what entries do you want to be exported by using the Search filter option in the Export Data Wizard - LDAP Settings page.
> Can I also use import to apply bulk corrections, and if so what attribute is required to identify the records in question?
Updated entries are identified by their DNs. You need to make modifications in the exported data and then perform import with enabled option 'Update existing objects' .

Please read the following articles to get more information about how top perform import/export operations using the LDAP Administrator:
