Hello,
I am looking for ldifde script to import the ldf files.

I already exported the OUs and Objects using the commands below, but now I need a script to import them into the target.local domain.

THank you very much!

ldifde -f sourceOu.ldf -s QMM-SRCEXCH -d "dc=source,dc=local" -p subtree -r "(objectClass=organizationalUnit)" -l "cn,objectclass,ou"

ldifde -f sourceuser.ldf -s QMM-SRCEXCH -d "dc=source,dc=local" -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=User)(givenname=*))" -o "badPasswordTime,badPwdCount,lastLogoff,lastLogon,logonCount, memberOf,objectGUID,objectSid,primaryGroupID,pwdLastSet,sAMAccountType"

To import OU:

ldifde -i -f sourceOu.ldf -s QMM-SRCEXCH -d "dc=target,dc=local" -p subtree -r "(objectClass=organizationalUnit)" -l "cn,objectclass,ou"

To Import users:
 ldifde -i -f sourceuser.ldf -s QMM-SRCEXCH -d "dc=target,dc=local" -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=User)(givenname=*))" -o "badPasswordTime,badPwdCount,lastLogoff,lastLogon,logonCount, memberOf,objectGUID,objectSid,primaryGroupID,pwdLastSet,sAMAccountType"

NOTE: Because LDIFDE does not export passwords, when the users are imported into the directory, the account is disabled and the password is set to null. This is done for security reasons. Also, the account option "User must change password at next logon" is selected.

I also tried this command but it gives another error since our environment has custom schema.....Is there a way to import users that have attributes exported from custom schema?

Please help.

I tried this command and it also gives an error:
ldifde -i -f Exportuser.ldf -s Server2

this error :

dd error on line 2: No Such Attribute

The server side error is "The parameter is incorrect."

0 entries modified successfully.

An error has occurred in the program

This issue was resolved by only exporting the attributes that can be imported into the Target schema. Once I determined the attributes that I have in the target and exported only the needed attributes, the import worked.
