You’ve followed all the best practices and documentation. Your eDirectory trees are healthy and replicating with no errors. Time is in synchronization and ndsrepair shows no errors or external references hanging out there.

An update to the verry handy cool solution Sample Code – LDAPNetAddr
I found that recently our edir returned an addresstype 9 (tcp) instead of 1 (IP), which wasn’t handled correctly by the sample code. I’ve modified the code to handle these addresses correctly.
There is a very easy way to see the last modification timestamp for any object in eDirectory but for looking up the last modification timestamp for any attribute on any object in eDirectory, the process involves a few steps …
Recently, I got hit with the sporadic Missing LAG/”Null Value” bug. For those that are unfamiliar with this little feature, I’ll give you the scenario.
Updated: For several years the ability to timestamp objects within iMonitor has been available, but doing so to dozens/hundreds/thousands of objects has never been much fun. As iMonitor is just a web interface scripting interactions with it is fairly easy to do.
How to use ModifyTimestamp in IDM.
I was recently asked to configure Mac Address authentication for our wireless network, on top of our existing Freeradius/eDirectory authentication mechanism. It took some tweaking to get it to work the way we wanted, but it is working. And I learned quite a bit more about Freeradius along the way.
Let’s face the fact, assigning iPrint printers in iManager, especially if the users are in a different container than the iPrint Printer, can become very tedious and time consuming. First you have to wait for the browse window to choose a printer, then wait for the browse window to browse for the users or groups, and finally select all of your users. Well what if you had 5 executives that needed to have access to every Xerox Printer in the organization and these printers existed in multiple containers? Let’s say there were 35 of these printers. This could take hours. I’ll demonstrate how to do it in less than 5 minutes.
