Category Archive: 2. Migrating Novell to Microsoft

Instructions: migrating from Novell to Microsoft

1. Read trustee information from the Novell server 

1.1. Source: Novell Netware

1.1.1. Output Permissions with the Trustee.nlm command

Novell Netware does not have any trustee-database.xml. The trustees however can be read with the console command trustee.nlm.
An example for the syntax is:

TRUSTEE /ET /D SAVE VOL1: sys:\trustee-vol1.csv

/ET for permissions, without ownership
/D for directories, without files
VOL1: permissions and directories from this volume
sys:\trustee-vol1.csv is the output file

If the output file contains unwanted information other than the trustees, you can generate a file reduced to TRUSTEEs with:
FIND “TRUSTEE” trustee.csv > only_trustee.csv
