Lotus Domino CA and Ou

lordfd asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-18

We would want to implement CA and Ou in Domino. Which comes first. Creation of CA then from CA id create Ou's OR create OU's using CERT id then create CA using CERT id?

Currently we're on a plat hierarchy with 5,000 notes users.. We're using R7.0.3, and soon plan to upgrade to R8... But before upgrading to R8, we wanted to implement OU's (15 department = Ou1), and also delegate the user registration to the HRD...

By creating CA, we can delegate user registration to the HRD but how about OU? Can the HRD move the user to the new OU using CA? or is this an Administrator task?

Please advice.

If you create OU users ID's, and then give part of tese to HR, then they can  create users  in those OUs.


I hope this helps !
