We have 2000+ users. Is there a command line utility or a way to assign a Role to each of these users without having to open the properties tab for each of them?

This document describes how to use the Batch Utility or the built-in wizard in eTrust Admin Manager to add roles to multiple Global Users.


There are two methods that can be used to update all Global Users with specific Roles.

Method # 1:
Using the etautil command utility

For example:

etautil -d youretrustDomain -u etaadmin -p yourpassword masschange 'eTGlobalUserContainerName=Global 
Users,eTNamespaceName=CommonObjects' eTGlobalUser eTGlobalUserName=* to 

NOTE: Substitute the '*' with a specific user, i.e. eTGlobalUserName=user1)

Method # 2:
Using the built-in wizard in eTrust Admin Manager to "Change Role's Users". (see figure 1 below)
There are also a number of other options under the Roles wizard.
You may decide to use different options depending on your planned configuration.
