Novell IDM Is there a report or way to easily compare Active Directory against eDirectory for users that have not migrated over?

I have a lot of accounts of users that have not changed their password and as a result have not synced the password. You might ask, why not just change force the passwords to change at next login? The boss doesn't want to do that and wants to get a report first and a way to track to see how many users have not changed their password? we want to aggressive reach out to them and hand hold all 14,000 accounts that will most likely need to change the password.

I consulted with  a business colleague who works with NetIQ (Novell) IDM all day every day.  He suggested using a LDAP browser or LDAP utility (perhaps Apache Directory Studio).  He said there is a status field on the password attribute that you'll find with the LDAP browser.  I'm not sure if you'll be able to export data that could be put into Excel for proper formatting or not.

Hope that helps.

Yes, I tried Apache Studio and was looking for the npsm password field, but was having some trouble getting it to work. I had it working before, but was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts. With Apache Studio though, I think you can compare only one LDAP source at a time, so it would be looking between the two. I was wondering if IDM had anything built into it that might show the report of all the accounts it see's but has not migrated over.

Since I don't work regularly with IDM, I'm going to hopefully guess that the link to the Identity Manager Reporting Guide will steer you in the right direction.  I looked at the latest price list (my company is a Gold Partner with Micro Focus/Novell/NetIQ/SuSE) and I don't see a separate line item or price for the Reporting Guide so it must be in your license and set of tools.
