Novell Identity Manager 3.5.1


We are seeing an issue where a move happens and the attribute changes that occurred at the same time of the move are lost.


After reviewing the driver policies. This is exactly what should happen due to the nature of how eDirectory handles moves. eDirectory can not report what else changed when a move happened. IDM compensates for that by always generating a sync event to go along with the move. Sometimes  policies are created that veto the sync events. This is an incorrect practice by some users trying to use these types of policies as a short-cut.  The recommended approach is to make sure the configuration works properly with sync events.
