Exporting installation information

If you have an Active Directory account with permission to access installation information, you can export the service connection point that contains the installation information to a file in LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF). Exporting installation information can be useful if you want to add the domain for a perimeter network to an existing installation. After exporting installation information to a file, you can modify the file—for example, to use a different domain component—then import the modified file using the ldifde command.

To export and import installation information:

  1. Open Audit Manager.
  2. Select the installation name, right-click, then click Properties.
  3. Click the Publication tab.
  4. Select the Active Directory location, then click Export.
  5. Select a file location and type a file name, then click Save.
  6. Click OK to close the installation properties.
  7. Use a text editor to modify the file, as needed.

    For example, you might use a different domain component—such as DC=dmz1,DC=ajax, DC=org in place of DC=internal, DC=ajax, DC=org—to differentiate between the perimeter and internal networks.

  8. Import the modified file using a command similar to the following in a Command Prompt window:
    ldifde -i -f C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\sample-dmz.ldif
