Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 graphic

Configure naming contexts

For this procedure, in Management Agent Designer, on the Configure Naming Context page, you can select naming contexts (suffixes) and object containers (or sub-suffixes) you want to synchronize. Also, you specify credentials the management agent uses to read from or write to those naming contexts. To complete this procedure, you must be logged on as a member of the MIISAdmins security group.

This procedure applies to management agents for the following Microsoft Identity Integration Server 2003 editions:

Enterprise Edition Identity Integration Feature Pack for Active Directory
IBM Directory Server, Sun and Netscape directory servers N\A

To specify naming context configuration

  1. On the Naming Context Configuration page, select the naming context that you want to include.
  2. Click Containers, and then do any of the following:
  3. In Server Information, in Server type, verify that the correct directory server version is detected, and then, if you are configuring this management agent for use with a delta import run profile, verify that Change log enabled is set to Yes.
  4. To define search ranges within selected naming context containers with a large number of objects

    1. In Server Information, select Define Search Ranges, and then click Configure.
    2. In Configure Search Ranges, click Select, and then, in Select Attributes, in Available attributes, click an attribute, and then click Add. To remove an attribute from the Attribute list, select an attribute, and then click Remove.
    3. To further configure by-value search ranges for an attribute, in Attribute click an attribute, click Add, and then type a search range point value.
    4. To export (save) a search range, click Export, type a file name, and then click Save.
    5. To import (open) a search range, click Import, click the advanced search range file that you want to import, and then click Open.


    • Search filter clauses are combined with an AND operator in the order that you add them to the list, however, two or more search ranges can return the same result if a search range overlaps the same value as another search range. For example: Order 1 Value B, and Order 2 Value A, and Order 3, Value C return attributes with values beginning with B twice.
