  • Exporter Issues

    I am having a couple of issues related to the use of Exporter in our Windows 2000 network:
    - I can't get the account disabled flag to show up, I go through the list and don't see it as a field that can be selected.
    - I can't get a dump of computers. I want a listing of all computers that are in an OU called 'Resources', but it keeps coming up with no records.

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Exporter Issues

    I assume you are using Exporter Pro; if not let us know. And if you are not using the new Exporter Pro that is part of our current beta, you may want to try it out. If so, send a blank email to [email protected] to join the beta group.

    Either way, these instructions will apply to either Exporter Pro v1.0 or 1.2.

    To get the disabled account information, assuming that the users are in a Windows 2000 domain, you want to add your domain/OU into Exporter's object list (left window). Then, click on Configuration PRoperties, then go the Active Directory properties, and enable the Detailed User query. This query already included the AD field that you need: useraccountcontrol. This is a bit-mapped field, but Exporter parses it out for you. At that point, you can run the export.

    If you want, you can add the Resources OU into the object list, and either run the export with both objects, or disable the domain object when you run your second export. You could also optionally just export all of the computers and filter them later in Excel/Access by the OU.

    When you add the OU to the object list, go to Configuration Properties, Active Directory and enable the Computers directory query. This will export the computers in the OU (or the domain too if you have it active in the object list).

    The beta version makes this a bit easier by allowing you to select the object in Hyena, then select Tools->Export Selected Objects. You still have to tell it what to export, but it may makes things a bit easier.

    Either way, let me know if you have more questions.
