Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Installation Guide

Selecting and Mapping Attributes

There are two types of attributes:

ProcedureTo Select and Map Attributes for Synchronization

  1. Select the Identity Synchronization for Windows node at the top of the navigation tree.

    Figure 8–28 Attributes Tab

    Select the Attributes Tab.

    Note –

    When the Group Synchronization feature has been enabled, the uniquemember (Directory Server) attribute and member attribute (Active Directory) are internally mapped and would be indicated as shown in the console.

  2. Select the Attributes tab and then click the New button.

    The Define Significant Attribute Mappings dialog box is displayed. Use this dialog box to map attributes from Directory Server to your Windows Systems (Active Directory and/or Windows NT).

    Figure 8–29 Defining Significant Attribute Mappings

    Use this dialog to map the attributes between systems.

    Note –

    Which creation attributes are mandatory for Directory Server (or for Active Directory) will depend on the objectclass configured for your Sun-side (or Active Directory-side) user entries.

    The program automatically uses inetOrgPerson as the default objectclass for Directory Server, and you loaded the Active Directory schema when you specified the global catalog. So you do not use the Load Schema buttons unless you want to change the default schema.

    If you want to change the default schema source, see Changing the Schema Source

  3. Select an attribute from the Sun Java System attribute drop-down list (for examplecn), and then select the equivalent attribute from the Active Directory attribute and/or Windows NT SAM attribute drop-down menus.

  4. When you are finished, click OK.

  5. To designate additional attributes, repeat steps 2 through step 4.

    A finished Synchronized Attributes table might look something like the following example, which shows the userpassword, cn, and telephonenumber Directory Server attributes mapped to unicodepwd, cn, and telephonenumber Active Directory attributes.
