I have looked and found no similar case so I ask here if you can help me.

I have an edir-edir driver between central identity storage and a
netware server. I set up the Home Directory attribute in the central IDM
output transformation policies and try to syncronize it to the netware
server but the attribute gets stripped after the mapping policies with

Code(-8003) Unable to synchronize reference to Path\to\volume from
attribute Home Directory.

I have checked and double checked that the volume object exists. I have
even made a policy that queries that from the destination netware server
to be able to compare the values in the same context and they match. Is
there a way to fix this?

I think I can go around this by placing the Home Directory creation to
the destination server after the mapping policies but this is annoying
since I have a mapping table of home directories stored in the central
identity storage.

Here is a piece of trace from the user add operation:
