Import LDAP Configuration Data
You can import configuration data from an LDIF file into a standard or replica View Connection Server by running the vdmimport command.
The vdmimport command is available in View 4.5 and later releases. In releases prior to View 4.5, you must use the LDIFDE command. See Import LDAP Configuration Data Using the LDIFDE Command.
By default, the vdmimport command-line utility is installed in the C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\tools\bin directory.
The vdmimport command does not update, create, or delete any LDAP records that are not defined in the LDIF file. This allows you to customize an LDIF file so that only selected records are affected when you import the file.
You must be logged into a View Connection Server instance as a user in the Administrators role to import configuration data successfully into the View configuration repository.
To import configuration data into a View Connection Server instance
1
Select Start > Command Prompt.

At the command prompt, type the vdmimport command and specify an existing LDIF file as an argument to the -f option.
vdmimport -f myexport.LDF
The configuration of your View Connection Server instance is updated with the data from the file, and the number of records that have been successfully updated is displayed. Errors are displayed if some records could not be updated because your role has insufficient privileges.
