Exercise 1
Creating an HR Management Agent
In this exercise, you will use MMS Compass to create and configure the HR tutorial management
agent.
Scenario
Your organization's human resources (HR) database system has been identified as the best data
source candidate for the first connected directory. You need to import the information from the
database into the metadirectory.

Tasks Detailed Steps
1.
Log on to Windows 2000,
start MMS Compass, and
then log on to your MMS
server.
a.
Log on to Windows 2000 as Administrator with a password of
password.
b.
Start MMS Compass, and then log on to your MMS server as
mmsadmin@nwtraders.msft with a password of password.
2.
Create an instance of the HR
tutorial management agent
called HR MA.
a.
In the control pane of MMS Compass, click Bookmarks, click
Management Agents, and then click Create New Management
Agent.
b.
In the Create Management Agent dialog box, in the Name of the
Management Agent box, type HR MA
c.
In the Type of the Management Agent box, click Tutorial HR
(LDIF) Management Agent, and then click Create.
The Configure the Management Agent dialog box appears.

3.
Configure HR MA to place
metaverse namespace data
under the following
location:
ou=metaverse,dc=domain,d
c=nwtraders,dc=msft
(where domain is your
domain name)
d.
In the Configure the Management Agent dialog box, on the
Connected Directory Specifics tab, on the Mode and Namespace
Management tab, before the existing text, in the Metaverse location
box, type ou=metaverse, (including the comma and no spaces)
resulting in ou=metaverse,dc=domain,dc=nwtraders,dc=msft (where
domain is your domain name), and then click OK.
Note: Adding “ou=metaverse,” to the metaverse location makes it easier to differentiate between metaverse
namespace and connector namespace changes.

Exercise 2
Operating the HR Management Agent
In this exercise, you will operate the HR management agent to populate the metaverse with the
organizational structure. You will change the name of the MoneyDept organizational unit to
Accounting. After modifying the organizational structure, you will import the employee
information from the HR database into the structure.
Scenario
Your organization's human resources database system has been identified as the best data source
candidate to begin to build an integrated metadirectory. The HR management agent has already
been created. The information from the database needs to be imported into the metadirectory. In
addition, the organizing structure needs to be modified to accommodate all the accounting
departments in your organization.
