    Before installing Landmark, we used a perl script (ldusers.pl) to load our users into our LSF (9.0.1.11) system. 

    I now have a Landmark (10.0.4.6) system federated and have LSF (again 9.0.1.11) as the primary authenticator.  I am also using the ISS method to keep the users synced as opposed to kerberos.  When I add the user manually into ISS, it adds the user in both LSF and LMK successfully.

    I'd like to know if anyone is aware of any script that will load the users into ISS like we did in LSF.  Thanks in advance.

    If you load them into LSF using the script, you should be able to use the sync function in ISS to re-sync them into LMRK. I know that's not what you're asking, but give that a try and see if it works...

    Thanks. That does work fine.  I was just curious if there was any knowledge of a script yet.  Thanks again.

    I have successfully mechanized S3 Landmark federation, but the solution is complex. The one clue I will disclose is Cygwin on the Landmark R2 server made it possible. I built CPAN complaint Perl modules because I knew it had to be flexible. What you want to do can't just be scripted.

    I would hope Infor is building a script tool like loadusers that will update both systems, but in the meantime it's somewhat simple to develop an IPA flow to add users to both Landmark and LSF. It has built in nodes for that purpose. You could also write a script to run the secadm commands, but that would probably be a bear.

    We've found the concept of ISS to add users into both landmark and LSF to be cumbersome and somewhat pointless, since it's so manual. It's way easier to build an IPA flow as Carl says that just builds the users in both LSF and Landmark. There's no real point in re-syncing so long as you build the users and services in both systems. I have yet to hear why the ISS sync for users is really any great benefit...

    Amen. As part of the beta for ISS, I made it clear that ISS was not ready for prime time until the sync was automatic and completely seamless.
