filtered supervisor rights

By efrahm ·
I have two objects in our tree to which no one has rights. Even supervisor rights have been filtered by a previous admin. I have the ability to see them, but not to delete or change. Is there a utility or TID covering this?

Couple of questions.....are the objects leaf objects or container objects? If container, can you manage the objects under the container? If leaf objects, do you need to keep them, or can you delete and then recreate them? Did the previous admin use an IRF or explicitly assign the rights? How many admin or admin-equivalent objects do you have in your tree?

There are a number of shareware/freeware utilities that may help you, but the guaranteed way of fixing your problem is to break out your credit card and calling Novell support.

Use DSBrowse. It is an NLM and runs on the server. Look at TID 10020238 for details. It will allow you to delete individual objects. This will also allow you to look for hidden objects that the old admin may have placed so they could login without you knowing.

1: Go to www.dreamlan.com, and get a copy of their tools. This will be cheaper than having Novell dial-in and fix it for you, but they can do that as well... Either option will more or less be a one time thing (for obvious security reasons).

2:Your previous admin is an idiot.

Alternately...

3:
If you know it was an admin who did it, and don't expect him to be hacking into your system, you could just ignore the whole thing, and not worry about it. That branch of the tree will be orphaned, but so what? If it ever becomes an issue, you can prune it then. For now, it's not doing damage, nor will it in the future, so just leave it alone...
