fix

The following example for cloning a group from one domain to another must be run from the \Program Files\NetIQ\DRA prompt on a computer with the CLI installed:


EA GROUP new_group_name CREATE CLONE:source_domain_name\group_nameOU:OU=OU_name,dc=domain_name,dc=com

The above syntax clones the following attributes:

  • Group type
  • Group scope
  • Description
  • Members

 



note

If you want to specify the name of an enterprise OU, use the following format:

OU=OU,DC=domain,DC=toplevel

For example, to specify the SALES OU in the HOUSTON.LOCAL domain, type:

OU:OU=SALES,DC=HOUSTON,DC=LOCAL

If you want to specify the name of a built-in OU, use the following format:

CN=OU,DC=domain,DC=toplevel

For example, to specify the Users OU in the HOUSTON.LOCAL domain, type:

OU:CN=Users,DC=HOUSTON,DC=LOCAL

When you create or clone a group, you must specify a Windows 2000 OU. You do not need to specify an OU for a Windows 2000 member server.



note

The Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) server uses the specified group as a template to create a new group. The DRA server then adds all members from the cloned group to the new group. If applicable, the DRA server also adds the new group to the ActiveViews of the original group.

In a Windows NT or mixed-mode domain, the DRA server assigns the same type from the cloned group to the new group. In a Windows 2000 domain, you can specify the group type.
