Use the btopt.exe Tool to Manage Options

Using the btopt.exe tool, you can manage options for AD Bridge Enterprise from the command-line of a Windows administrative workstation connected to Active Directory.

You can, for example, set an option to use sequential IDs instead of hashed IDs. In addition, after you set the option to use sequential IDs, you can set the initial UID number for a cell.

The btopt.exe tool is installed on computers running AD Bridge Enterprise in the following directory:

C:\Program Files\BeyondTrust\PBIS\Enterprise

C:\Program Files\BeyondTrust\PBIS\Enterprise> .\btopt.exe --help

--widesearch                    Search the default cell across all domains and two-way forest trust
--sequential                    Use sequential IDs instead of hashed IDs
--hashed                        Use hashed IDs
--foreignaliases                Allow the use of aliases for users and groups from other domains.

--usegc                         Use the Global Catalog to speed up searches (default)
--ignoregc                      Do not use the Global Catalog to speed up searches
--startUID=#                    Sets the initial UID number for a cell (if --sequential)
--startGID=#                    Sets the initial GID number for a cell (if --sequential)
--minID=#                       Sets minimum UID and GID number configurable through the UI
--cell=LDAPPATH                 Identifies the cell whose initial IDs (if --sequential) Example: LDAP://somedc/ou=anou,dc=somecom,dc=com
--enableloginnames              Sets the default login names to all the users enabled in all the cells.
--disableloginnames             Disable the enable default login names option to all users enabled in all the cells.
--disablesuggestbutton          Disable "Suggest" button, which is used to suggest UID/GID assignment to users and groups in the cells.
--enablesuggestbutton           Enable "Suggest" button, which is used to suggest UID/GID assignment to users and groups in the cells.

--disablegidvalidation          When turned off, you can set the GID value to any number — the GID value is not associated with a specific group. GID validation is disabled by default. When GID validation is disabled, the --minID option is enforced but there are no other restrictions. Any numerical GID can be selected.
--enableAssumeDefaultCell       Enables Assume Default Cell.
--disableAssumeDefaultCell      Disables Assume Default Cell.
--help                          Displays this usage information

If the --startUID or --startGID option is set, the --cell option must also be set.
