eDir to eDir driver for Migration


I am planning for Migrating the Old IDM environment to IDM 401

Since the migration involves from different operating systems, i see the
eDir-eDir is the best option to migrate all users/groups to new IDM
environment.

I have Active directory and database as connected system in my old
environment. Now I setup my new IDM 401 environment,imported the Old
driver's and upgraded the old AD and JDBC driver and pointed to Active
Directory and database and working fine.

Question
Now when i use the eDir to eDir dirver to migrate all users from Old
IDM environment to New IDM environment, will the DirXMl-Assoication of
Active Directory driver and the JDBC driver taken care?
What needs to be done to migrate these DirXML-Assoication properly?

Re: eDir to eDir driver for Migration

The associations themselves will not be migrated by default. The drivers
that you have running, though, should rebuild those assuming 'Matching'
works properly in this new environment pointing to those (MAD/JDBC)
applications.

You could always export the associations via LDAP and then import them
into your new environment, maybe modifying the associations' DN components
if necessary first if your driver objects are not in exactly the same
place in the new environment.

Good luck.

Re: eDir to eDir driver for Migration


Thanks for the reply,
How the drivers will rebuild association? imagine that i have
disabled the entitlements on the drivers because on old driver i dont
have entitlement and i have only out-of-box matching policies only.

When i migrate users from Old IDM to New IDM using eDir driver, the AD
driver in the New IDM will try to sync the user to AD and fails with
"LDAP Already exists" error. But will it create association for the new
Driver?

Note: I have created the driver name same in both old IDM and new
IDM environment.

Re: eDir to eDir driver for Migration

This is what I was referring to when I wrote "should rebuild those
assuming 'Matching' works properly" and that still applies. Driver
configs, by default, include matching that often works, thus prevent a
second "add" attempt and instead merging eDir what the application's
equivalent object. Test it and see; if it fails, fix the matching. If
not, export/import associations using LDAP. See the IDM documentation
'Matching' for more information.

Good luck.

Your Subscriber channel Matching Policy rules aren't working, then.

Yes..... but no. With the two eDir drivers it's the Publisher channel
with the valid Matching rules.

Good luck.

That's the eDir driver. He's talking about the MAD and JDBC drivers.

This seems like a really hard way to accomplish an upgrade. Why not just
upgrade the engine on your current "Old IDM" environment, and be done
with it?
