  • Importing User List from Text file

    I have a list of 1500 user in the following format

    I run exporter pro, import object file,
    select user from drop down, and then browse to the text file with the list of names.

    They get imported to exporter pro, however I have to resolve the name with Active Directory, for each and every user, by going into the properties of each user and then selecting the user id from the AD interface.

    Is there a format or syntax that I can format the text file in, so that the user names get resolved without me having to do the above.

    Sorry for the delay in a reply. Yes, take a look at the .DAT file where the objects are being stored and look at the path used. To import the users, you would need to use an AD path, ie LDAP://server/CN=Users,CN=account1,DC=domain,DC=com

    ...or something like that.

    If you have Hyena its even easier if you select the users in Hyena right window, select Tools->Export From Selected Objects, and then just export from there. Hyena will build the object file for you.
