I am currently testing OES 2 running on SLES10.1. I have installed Identity Manager 3.51 on the OES machine running as the metadirectory server. My connected system is Windows 2003 Server R2. I am unable to synchronize existing users, but if I create a new user in either AD or Edir the user is replicated to the other connected system.

Below is the error:

Message 1:

Code(-8003) Unable to synchronize reference to \TEST_TREE\testou\admin from attribute Owner.

      <component>Subscriber</component>
</status>
\TEST_TREE\testou\users\testuser

Any ideas ?

Firstly, ignore the "unable to sync reference" warnings. The problem is in the veto message. Have a look at your creation policies and work through them, examine the rules to see what is veto'd and why.

As I remember, IDM 3.5 will veto create operations if a user does not have the universal password populated in eDir. If you're trying to export a pre-existing user, this may well be the case. Have you setup the Universal Password policies correctly?

Alternatively, up your trace level to 5 in order to get a more detailed log output.

Thanks. I thought the universal password for the user was set, but I was wrong. Once I set it, it all worked fine.
