Etty Hillesum Lyceum uses Micro Focus Storage Manager to manage 20,000 user accounts. Identity Manager—another Micro Focus tool—integrates 15 different school networks into a central system.


Since all 15 of its schools had their own eDirectory or active directory, Etty Hillesum Lyceum needed to flow information from local directories into a central system. The giant Dutch education organization chose Identity Manager for the task.

To complement Identity Manager, the Lyceum uses Micro Focus Storage Manager to administer home directories of 20,000 user accounts.

Network engineer Bas Penris says that migrating to a new volume went “quickly and without any effort”—in fact, he deployed Storage Manager in under three hours. Penris notes that Storage Manager’s load balancing and nighttime automated migration are features he finds particularly helpful.
