Planning the management of entries in the Domino® Directory

You can use the HCL Domino® Administrator, the Web Administrator, directory synchronization tools, and third-party LDAP applications to manage entries in the Domino® Directory.

Domino® Administrator and Web Administrator

About this task

The People & Groups tab of the Domino® Administrator and Web Administrator clients provide several tools for managing Domino® user and group entries in the Domino® Directory, including tools that:

  • Rename and recertify users
  • Edit user and group entries
  • Find user and group entries
  • Set policies for user and group entries

Many of these tools invoke the Administration Process to automate these tasks.

Directory synchronization tools

About this task

If you modify or delete a Domino® user or group, Domino® provides tools you can use to simultaneously carry out the modification or deletion to a corresponding user or group in Active Directory.

Third-party LDAP applications

About this task

The LDAP service allows third-party LDAP applications to modify directory entries. By default the LDAP service does not allow LDAP write operations to a directory, so you must set up the directory to allow them.
