    I am in the middle of migrating W2K to W2k3. I read several articles about
    running ldifde -i -f inetorgpersonprevent.ldf -v -c DC=<X>"<dn path for
    forest root domain>"
    I also read some artilces saying to run ldifde -i -f
    inetorgpersonprevent.ldf -v -c "DC=X" "DC=gk,DC=com"
    Is DC=X suppose in double quote "DC=X" or just DC=X? Is X = something else?
    what is X?
    How do I find the dn path for forest root domain? I probably know that
    "dc=microsoft, dc=com". I want to make sure that is correct.
    Any help is appreciated? Thanks.

  2. Hi Eric,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    You can just juse DC=X. The "-c" parameter of ldifde means "FromDN ToDN
    Replace occurences of FromDN to ToDN"

    For example:

    ldifde -i -f lda.ldf -v -c DC=X "DC=<forest root>"

    Replacing <forest root> with the dn of your forest root. Leave DC=X. This
    is a constant that will be replaced by the forest root name when the script
    runs.

    Have a nice day!

    Bob,
    Thanks for your response. What's the difference between "DC=x" and DC=X? I
    saw articles specify "DC=X" and some articles specify DC=X. What's the
    difference of having a double quote?
    Thanks.

  4. Hi Eric,

    They are same. In general, we just use DC=X without quotation marks.

    If you get any problem, please feel free to post here.

    Thank you for using our Newsgroup.
