Importing users into k1000 from multiple specific AD OU's.
Ok, I've read many things in Itninja related to importing user and creating search filters, etc.. and I have gotten no where fast. In fact, today the pass through authentication quit working and I didn't even touch that. I'm trying to clean things up a bit in K1000 and here's what I want to do and not do.
1) I want to Import users from AD into the K1000 to get a good starting point for users. Why? we have about 750 user/email accounts in our company but only 400 will need access to the K1000 for helpdesk/knowledge base use. The other 350 users will Never utilize it.
2) I Don't want to import the 100+ security groups into the K1000. These groups are of no use to our need and I'm in the process of eliminating about 70% of them. No one has a clue as to why we had so many or what they did. Not talking about Built-in groups/groups created by Exchange, etc.
3) I want to import users from Specific AD OU's only.
The problem I keep running into - I open users > select User Import. I enter the LDAP server IP, LDAP port (389), Search base DN (dc=mydomain,dc=com), Search filter (&(samaccountname=Kbox_USER)(memberof=OU=Users,OU=Customer Service,OU=BIL,DC=mydomain,DC=com). This is where I can get nothing to work right. The next screen requires an LDAP Uid, User Name & Email and all I see is No Value.
If I enter (objectclass=user) in the Search Filter then it works fine but now I get All 750 users and the 100 security groups that I don't want.
What am I doing wrong or not at all?
