Hi,

I understand that I'll lose users that are cn=Staff_Admins,dc=etc

So the Q is why I am losing users in the --win-subtree cn=VUW_Staff,dc= etc

This I dont understand....

I have the -v already, anyway to make it very verbose?

Hi,

The first time missed the --win-subtree settings so I wiped the admins in the 
IPA admin group and users as they were not in cn=users as per the bug.  The 
second time as far as I can tell I specified the correct cn via win-subtree 
flag but I still appear to have lost the users in IPA.....now I expected to 
lose the admins but the loss of users as well confounds me.

I did a ldapsearch as per checking and its seems to be saying the right 
folder/ou/cn but IPA is empty.

Hence I was wondering if there was a log recording what the update was doing so 
I could try and figure out the mistake.  Ive tried greping cant find any 
indication.

I will re-try with -v, verbose.

It is not clear from the manuals, but no matter what -win-subtree you specify, 
winsync will search AD starting from the dc=domain suffix.  So, for example, if 
you have
cn=mystaff,cn=staff,dc=example,dc=com
and you specify
--win-subtree "cn=mystaff,cn=staff,dc=example,dc=com"
winsync will still search starting from dc=example,dc=com and will hit 
ticket/355<https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/355> if there are any users 
outside of cn=mystaff,cn=staff,dc=example,dc=com that have the same username as 
a user in IPA.

Hi,

I just tried to do a winsync agreement with specifying the AD point as 
cn=VUW_Staff,dc=staff,dc=vuw,dc=vuw,dc=ac,dc=nz  as my users are not in the 
users folder but the VUW_Staff folder (at the same level) and it wiped all IPA 
users that are also in AD.

Yes, this is what happens with https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/355
#355     winsync should not delete entry that appears to be out of scope

While doing the actual update does this get verbosly logged anywhere as opposed 
to "update in progress" dumped to the screen?  Something went badly wrong, I 
just dont know what.

You are seeing something different than #355?


:/
