PROF_TYPE in map_dbrepos_from_source.properties

In the Profiles part of Lotus Connections you can configure
multiple profile types, which will give you different lay-outs per type.

You can follow this InfoCenter link how to set it up.
Mitch Cohen also wrote a very detailed guide how to do it.

One thing I came about is how to populate the PROF_TYPE database
field in the EMPINST.EMPLOYEE table. This column is used to determine
what kind of profile type should be used for an user.

I discovered that you can use the following line in the
map_dbrepos_from_source.properties file to use a LDAP attribute
to populate the PROF_TYPE field. This option is not mentioned
in the InfoCenter of Lotus Connections.

PROF_TYPE=employeeType

(
or what LDAP attribute you want to use, but the field employeeType
looks pretty obvious to me :-p

employeeType is an attribute from the objectClass inetorgperson
)

With this config, the sync_all_dns.sh command will use the LDAP
field employeeType to fill the PROF_TYPE column in the
EMPLOYEE table of profiles. This also will keep the profile type
up-to-date if the employeeType LDAP attribute of a user should change.
