Hello, Mike. In Domino 6.5, I have one Domino domain (Acme) and one Organization (Acme). Under this organization, I have several first-level OUs (North/Acme, South/Acme, etc.), under which Level 2 OUs exist (and subsequently Level 3 and 4 OUs). For example, I have OUs such as: HQ/North/Acme, Branch1/North/Acme, Branch2/South/Acme, etc.
I wish to have the following: Users belonging to OU North (and all its sub-OUs) have the ability to see the primary Domino domain directory (Acme), but also their OU's sub-directory (North/Acme), where this subdirectory contains all users and group entries belonging to the North OU. The same applies to users in the South OU. I also wish that the users in North use this North OU directory as their primary directory instead of the domain directory.
What can I do to achieve this? Should I use condensed directory catalogs, or is there a better alternative?
Having them use it as the primary directory is where you will have your issues. For server-based addressing, you are not going to be able to get around using the primary directory as the first choice. If they are local/replicating users, you could go with the directory catalogs with only their OUs.
