When I migrate users and their associated groups, can DMA automatically put the migrated users in an existing group in the target domain?
DMA does not provide a method for automatically placing the migrated users in an existing group in the target domain using the GUI. This can be accomplished with scripting.
Below is a sample 'Post User' script that will add a user to a group. You can use this as a starting point, modifying it to match the specifics of your environment.
Set grp = GetObject("LDAP://CN=group_name,OU=container,DC=domain,DC=domain ") 'For Win2k target domains
Set grp = GetObject("WinNT://domain_name/group_name") 'For NT domains
mem = grp.Add(targetObject.adspath)
Please refer to our white paper "Customizing Domain Migration Administrator with Scripting" which can be downloaded from https://www.netiq.com/products/dma/whitepapers.asp for more details.
Please note that information regarding the use of scripting can also be obtained from Chapter 9 of the DMA 7.1 User Guide.
