One more question...in the command to import (dxmodify) the example is:

dxmodify  - a  - c  - H ldap://current_fullyqualifiedhostname:dsaport  - D "cn=EiamAdmin,cn=Admins,cn=Entities,cn=iTechPoz"  - w eiamadminpassword  - f iTechPoz-export.ldif

 

It seems to want to get stuff from an ldap server:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Directory\dxserver\bin>dxmodify ?
Add or modify entries from an LDAP server

usage: dxmodify [options]
        The list of desired operations are read from stdin or from the file
        specified by "-f file".
Add or modify options:
  -a         add mode, adds entries to the directory (default is to replace)
  -E [!]ext=extparam    modify extensions (! indicates criticality)
  -F         force all changes records to be used
  -l limit   time limit (in seconds, or "none" or "max") for modify
  -q            quiet mode, doesn't report successful add/mod dn's
  -r default is to replace rather than add values
  -s period     sleep for 'period' (ms) after each operation
  -S file    write skipped modifications to `file'
Common options:
  -c         continuous operation mode (do not stop on errors)
  -d level   set LDAP debugging level to `level'
  -D binddn  bind DN
  -f file    read operations from `file' rather than standard input
  -h host    LDAP server
  -H URI     LDAP Uniform Resource Indentifier(s)
  -M         enable Manage DSA IT control (-MM to make critical)
  -n         show what would be done but don't actually do it
  -p port    port on server
  -P version procotol version (default: 3)
  -v         run in verbose mode (diagnostics to standard output)
  -w passwd  bind password (for simple authentication)
  -W         prompt for bind password
  -x         Simple authentication
  -y file    Read password from file
  -Z         Start TLS request (-ZZ to require successful response)

C:\Program Files (x86)\CA\Directory\dxserver\bin>

 

 

My eiamadmin credentials are all local and not in an LDAP server. I see a -x for Simple authentication but I do not see an option for specify the eiamadmin name except as an LDAP URI.
