CheckNDS

Why do you need CheckEdir?
Sometimes some links in the NDS get lost, because these error’s aren’t really data-base corruption’s, you can not repair them with Dsrepair (Netware/windows) or ndsrepair (linux). One of the most common errors is that a in ConsoleOne / iManager a user object claims to have a Group Membership of a Group but the user isn’t in the Member attribute of that group. If this is the case you can have strange errors like problems with filerights or Application not showing up in the NAL. It’s the responsibility of applications like ConsoleOne / iManager to create both links between the group and user. There are a quite a few of these "double" links in the NDS. This program can check some of these links and let you repair or remove the "faulty" links. The program always uses the master replica(s).

Userman

What is userman?

The maintenance of some general user object fields (e.g. Telephone Number) is in many organisations not really a task of the automations personnel. You can release Nwadmin or Console One to the maintainer of those fields, many (edp) managers don’t like this. This program can modify all the attributes found on the Nwadmin general tab of an user object. The maintainer doesn’t need supervisor rights, it does need the NDS-rights to the attributes he/she may modify. If you have NDS 7 or up this can be done with the tool NdsRights.exe (a seperate free downloadable utility for the web-site). If you have nds 6 or below you need to set the access-rights to all user objects that need to be managed. (There is no tool available!).<br>
The program can also change the password of a user and there is an option for editing the Login-script. It is possible to add/delete a picture (jpegPhoto or ldapPhoto) and the program can manage the homeInfo attributes (homePostalAddress, childern, homeEmailAddress).

The program can show multiple trees and search in multiple trees.

  • Simple!!
  • Backups optionally the file-rights (extended version)
  • (Sub)Tree backup is possible
  • The datafile is offline (not on the same server as the eDirectory itself)
  • The datafile is not a database, so no interface/installation problems
  • Every backupfile contains the whole schema
  • Multiple backupfiles (every day another file)
  • Restore of a single object (and this links from other objects to the object)
  • Restore (sub)tree (with class based filtering)
  • Restore object to another location in the tree (with link repair)

MassUser

The program has three major functions:

Home Directories
You can use the program to create new home directories, or use the program for re-creation of the HOME DIRECTORY attribute in the NDS after a migration and so on. The program has a few different user selection options, e.g.: Context, Group or LDIF file and more. You can select if you want to create the NDS home attribute or the HOME DIRECTORY itself (or both), and you can set the directory attributes, trustee rights, volume-space restrictions or directory quotas or ownership for all files in a HOME DIRECTORY (especially useful after a migration).

Other features of the program:
»The program can also mass remove home directories.
»CVS import.
»Set/Clear Default server of a user.
»Alias support in context search.
»Conditionally set the UserSpace/directory quota's.

User
You can create/update/modify/export and lots of other options on users.

Extra Directory
User based directories that are not a homedirectory but based upon some other attribute or just the name. Almost anything that can be done with a homedirectory can be done with an extra directory.

DN and DNL

DN and DNL are commandline utilities for modifying NDS-attributes, trustee assignments on the filesystem and many many more. There are around predifined 90 commands available. The program has also a (script) language. The language can be used for creating new commands and or command scripts.  This new version contains the programs DN (needs Novell Client) and DNL (uses LDAP). DN.exe is more powerfull because in combonation with the client it can also modify filesystem attributes/features (trustees, owenship, directory/file attributen).
Also new in this version is option for loading extra modules, at the moment the most important is the GW-module. (Groupwise 2014 and later). This new module is still under development.

Important! Please read chapter 1 of the DN manual for the fundamental operation of the program.

Links to the documentation:

NdsRights

A maintainer of the fields in de eDirecotory needs eDirectory-rights. In NDS 7 and up you have inherited rights, so you can set at a higher level the NDS-rights for someone (or organizational role). E.g. if you set at [root] level the modify right for the Telephone Number, than the user or a role-member can set the Telephone Number for all users in the eDirectory. If you want to differentiate the rigths to different persons for diffente parts of the eDirectory, you can set the NDS-rights at a lower (container) level in the NDS.

You can use ConsoleOne or iManager to set these rights, and/or use the iManager roles for this. This is a simple tools that can do the same thing.

Warning the program only adds nds-rights, it can not revoke/delete NDS-rigths. Use Console One or iManager for this.

This tool was developped for UserMan and later extended for a change password utility, for most common attributes you can grant write access rights.

HBWlogin /setup

Run this in a dosbox. The program will ask you for the treename, username and password. The password will not hidden on the screen. The program creates the hbwlogin.ini file and the encrypted password file.

HBWlogin /t=<treename> /u=<username>

The program will use the treename and username for the login. For the password the program will use the filename pass<treename>$<username>.hbw. You can use the program pass.exe for the generation of the password file.

HBWlogin /m or HBWlogin /m /t=<tree> /u=<user>

The /m parameter will create a map to a server (the first one that reacts) It will create the following mapping similar to the command map f:=server/sys:\public.

The program returns one of the following error levels.

0 Login successful
1 Login failed
2 Some internal error

BrowseNDS

BrowseNDS is a NDS/eDirectory utility that allows to:

  • Browse the tree: and show all visible attributes and its value's. For many attributes there are so called decoders, so the information is in a (more) human readable form.

  • Execute some (simple) queries and export the result to a csv-file
  • Show and edit the schema
  • Show TimeSync information
  • Show Partition informaton
  • Some limited edit functionallity on "simple" attribute

The start of the utility dated back to 1998. It is heavily used by myself for the developing of all other tools on this site, and often used for debugging eDirectory problems.

Agenda

This program is intended for receptionists or secretaries that need to have insight into the Groupwise Agenda indepent of the Groupwise proxy settings. The program uses the “trusted app” option of groupwise, at means that the program can access all mailboxes without knowing the passwords In most companies this in not allowed without explicit authorization of the management!

You can setup your own "filters'. These filtes can be a combination of Domain, Postoffice membership, edirectory group membership, some ldap filter, and there is an option for exclutions. See also manual for more info.


The program van be used:

  • Single location, or separate locations where it is not allowed to see agendas at other locations
  • Multi location, with a default location for the user. The user can see into agendas at other locations

All queries are done in the eDirectory with LDAP, so the user does not need the Novell Client. Because the program uses a special "search user" the user of the program does not need any special eDirectory rights.

All the information is placed in an ini-file with a checksum option, so the end-user can not change the information. The password for the search user in the ini-file is encrypted.

All the information retreived from Groupwise is done with SOAP, so there is no need for a Groupwise Client on the locale machine. SOAP has to be configured on the different postoffices!.

The package include a config wizard-style program with help for setting.

Allthough this program is a "GroupWise" utility, the license is eDirectory based, so you will find the download under eDirectory tools and also on the license page.

The installation package contains an extra installation setup for the agenda.
