I need to migrate some files on a Netware server to an NTFS share. I want to use the MS FMU (File Migration Utility) tool to do so.

FMU requires a mapping file, to map eDirectory objects to AD objects, that it expects to have come from the MSDSS service (MS Directory Synchronization Services) but I do not wish to neither install, nor run this tool on the production environment since they are already synchronized in another fashion.

I just need a good sample of what the Migration log file should look like, and I can generate it, since the usernames are the same and the contexts in both eDirectory and AD are predictable.

I found a sample on a forum post, but it is unclear if the formatting survived or was lost, through the pre-SO/SF/SU interfacing of that forum. If you have such a file handy that you could share, or even just comment on how the file I have looks in terms of formatting, that would be great.

I have tried to generate this file and make it look like the one you have. However what I found is that the FMU does not like it and gives an error about an invalid header when you try to load it up. I am thinking that the MSDSS tool keeps some sort of session ID in active directory and will not let you manually create the file. I hope I am wrong!! Did you get this to work??

A team mate of mine ended up dealing with this, and generated the map by hand, such that it is, in the end. –  geoffc Feb 25 '10 at 21:40
