A Forum reader recently asked:

“I’d like to migrate 150 accounts in to the IDVault using the ‘migrate in to IDVault’ option in iManager but this will only let me do one at a time. Is there a way I can make the IDM engine do this for multiple accounts?”

And here is the response from Father Ramon …


1. Migrate one user with Trace Level 3 enabled.

2. From the trace, take the document that initialized the migration. It should have a form something like this:

    <query ....>

3. Copy that to a file.

4. Edit the file to duplicate the query portion once for each additional object you want to migrate, changing the specifics to match each object.

5. Use “dxcmd -migrateapp <driver dn> <filename>” to submit the document to the driver.
