This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All

 

I have made a new dataclass called UserAccountControl. This field i want to populate with the UserAccountControl from Active Directory.

So I made a change from column mapping in Active Directory Import and ran Full import. Nothing happens.

Any suggestions ?

isn't really designed to add custom columns, so it's probably just ignoring your add. You can accomplish this by creating a custom import rule if you have the Asset\CMDB solution added.

Thanks for the input Jim.

I have done this in version 6.x of AD import, but in 7.x it doesn't work.

The problem is, i have to make a lot of LDAP import rules to cover all the users. So the AD import is more maintance free.

I tried to makes LDAP import rule to update the field for UserAccountControl(custom data class) is NS for User.

I use Employee ID as resorce lookup key against samAccountName from AD. (OK)

I match NS UserAccountControl field with AD UserAccount. (OK)

But Import rule sets Employee ID = samAccountName in column mapping (greyed out and not removable).

These means that all updates fails/are skipped and I'm only interested in updates to existing users i NS.

See attached file

Anyone have a workaround for this ? Any tips are very welcome.

to unselect the employee id? Many times data classes are added by default that may not be needed or wanted by the import.Interesting to know that you were able to change v6 AD import rules, I was always told not to modify them as the results could be 'unpredictable' and not supported.

I tried to sync from the domain root with the custom mappings.

It works like a charm then.
