The following instructions explain how to add and map creation attributes from Active Directory to Directory Server. (The procedure for adding and mapping creation attributes flowing from Directory Server to Windows and from Windows to Directory Server is similar.)
Click the New button in the Creation Attribute Mappings and Values dialog box.
The Define Creation Attribute Mappings and Values dialog box is displayed.
Select an attribute value from the Active Directory attribute drop-down list.
Identity Synchronization for Windows allows you to initialize an attribute with multiple values— if the attribute itself accepts multiple values.
For example, if your company has three fax telephone numbers, you can specify the facsilimiletelephonenumber attribute for both Sun Java System Directory Server and Active Directory, and specify the three numbers.
You must know which attributes will accept multiple values. If you try adding multiple values to an attribute that does not accept them, an error will result during runtime when the program attempts to create the object.
Enter a value in New value field and click Add.
The program adds the attribute value to the list pane. Repeat this step as many times as necessary to add multiple attribute values.
When you are finished, click OK.
Based on the example, the finished Creation Attributes and Mappings table would look like the one in the following figure.
To designate additional attributes, repeat these steps.
