Search base selection

Select the Active Directory search base to use when matching Unix accounts to Active Directory accounts. All user and group objects found under the selected search base will be considered for matching. This can reduce the network load when importing user and group accounts. You can also use the search base to restrict the set of accounts to a particular container or organizational unit.

Account association

The Account Association page allows you to customize account associations when linking Unix accounts to Active Directory accounts. The Unix Account Import Wizard attempts to automatically match the Unix account information to Active Directory accounts using the specified matching rules. If the Import Wizard finds multiple matches, it displays a message warning you of a conflict. You can select it from the matches or click the ... option to browse Active Directory for a different account. The tool bar filter buttons allow you to filter out matched items from the list. With the filter enabled, items disappear from the list as you match the Unix information to Active Directory accounts.

You can click the tool bar button to permanently remove the selected item from the list. Click the 3 Red X's tool bar button to permanently remove all visible items from the list.

Final Review

The Final Review view allows you to review the proposed changes before any information is written to the directory. When you click Next from this view, the proposed changes are applied to the directory.

If you are unsure whether you want to apply the changes at this time, you can click the Save import session button to save the current session data to a text file. You can review the information and apply the changes at a later time by running the Unix Account Import Wizard again and selecting Resume saved import session.


The Results view confirms that the import is complete. If any problems were encountered, the import errors are reported on this view.
