Frequently Asked Questions

Where are my profiles and settings stored? How can I copy them to another PC?

Profiles, credentails and other settings are stored in the metabase.stg file located in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Softerra\LDAP Administrator 4 folder. This file is not human readable, so it can't be read or manually edited. To copy your profiles from one workstation to another, use Load/Save Configuration dialog or just copy the metabase.stg file to an appropriate folder of a destination PC.

I get 'ERROR 4: Sizelimit Exceeded' error. What's wrong and what can I do?

If you have a full-featured license, such a behavior may occur due to either of the two possible reasons, or both:

I can't connect to my server via a secure (SSL) connection. What's wrong? What can I handle that?

SSL is a tough issue, which requires certain knowledge to be able to perform necessary actions on the server side in order to install SSL support. If you aren't familiar with X.509 and SSL in particular, you expose yourself to a high risk of making a mistake while issuing a server certificate or adjusting your server configuration, which will make it impossible to connect to the server. Our experience shows that in 99% of cases, SSL problems occur due to the server-side issues. To troubleshoot your SSL issues, try running your server or SCHANNEL API (an SSL implementation used by Softerra LDAP Administrator) in the debug mode.

Is there a command-line client? How can I schedule export of my LDAP server data?

There is a command-line tool that comes with Softerra LDAP Administrator package. It's called laimex.exe that is localed in the same folder where Softerra LDAP Administrator is installed. Command line options for laimex.exe are described in the Softerra LDAP Administrator Help. laimex.exe can be used together with Windows scheduler to perfrom export/import LDAP data operations automatically.
