How do I translate securityÂ for remoteÂ users uponÂ the nextÂ logon?
There is no supported way for Domain Migration Administrator (DMA) to translate security for remote users upon their next logon. An unsupported workaround is to initiate a Computer Migration/Security Translation using the command line interface that is included with DMA.Â The type of operating system (OS) of the source domain will determine what possibilities are available.Â
Follow the steps outlined inÂ NETIQKB4010Â to prepare a task to run via the CLI. Use this procedure to prepare the 'Migrate Computers' and/or 'Translate Security Settings' steps of the migration and select the machines that were not connected during the migration. If you would like to translate the user's profile during this step, the user may need to dial-in or connect to the network using a different user account so their actual local profile will be translated. This does not apply to users who have roaming profiles because those are translated during the user migration rather than during the computer migration or security translation.
For a Windows 2000 source domain:
- CreateÂ a Group Policy toÂ execute the DMACLI command to migrate and translate the machine.
ForÂ a Windows NT source domain:
- Create a logon script that willÂ executeÂ the NETDOM Windows 2000 Support Tool to migrate the machine to the new domain.
- Set a Group Policy in the target domain that will execute the DMACLI command.
Another option is to have the remote users change the domain affiliation manually and simply have the target Group Policy run the DMACLI to translate security on the workstations.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that a user's profile cannot be translated if that profile is currently being accessed. If you would like to translate the user's profile during this step, the userÂ needs to dial-in or connect to the network using a different user account so their actual local profile will be translated. This does not apply to users who have roaming profiles.
The development and troubleshooting of scripting is outside the scope of Technical Support. These services are available through your NetIQ Sales Representative.

Please note that information regarding the DMACLI can also be found in Appendix A of the DMA and SC User Guide. Also, information regarding delegation of migration tasks can also be found in Chapter 6 of the DMA and SC User Guide.
