8.0 Managing the Driver

As you work with the Active Directory driver, there are a variety of management tasks you might need to perform, including the following:

  • Starting, stopping, and restarting the driver

  • Viewing driver version information

  • Using Named Passwords to securely store passwords associated with the driver

  • Monitoring the driver’s health status

  • Backing up the driver

  • Inspecting the driver’s cache files

  • Viewing the driver’s statistics

  • Using the DirXML Command Line utility to perform management tasks through scripts

  • Securing the driver and its information

  • Synchronizing objects

  • Migrating and resynchronizing data

  • Activating the driver

  • Upgrading an existing driver

Because these tasks, as well as several others, are common to all Identity Manager drivers, they are included in one reference, the NetIQ Identity Manager Driver Administration Guide.
