Moving iFolder data to new server in new tree

Hello,

Due to organizational changes I would like to move our ifolder server
data from our old server in our old tree to a cluster in a new tree. The
new tree is structured differently but all of the people who have
ifolder accounts currently have user objects somewhere in the new tree.
I can't find any info on how to go about this.

Please help.

Thanks.

Easiest would be to do a fresh install and then sync up the data from the
individual users.

I would rather not do this if i can avoid it, here's why:

I have only two users using iFolder. Neither is using a passphrase. One
is local, who is not a problem at all, but one is a permanent remote
worker who is never at the office who has 6GB of data in his iFolder. It
would take days to resync his iFolder over his home DSL link.

Is there any way to do this?

Thanks.

I wonder if you could...

* Login as the remote user on a local machine and attach to the current
iFolder server, thus syncing from the server down to the workstation
* Then login from the same local station to the new server and sync from
the workstation to the new server

The question is... when the remote user logs into the new server, will the
client and server think they are in sync, or not? I don't know the answer
to that, but maybe Anders will find out when has asks Novell for more
feedback.

Re: Moving iFolder data to new server in new tree

Here it is:

"You should be able to just copy the ifolder data down to the new
server, create the new ifolder server in edirectory ..

The data will be ok as long as the user is using the same passphrase.
Of course this guy doesn't have passphrases so he should be ok. I was
working with somebody in the field on this and told them this and they
never got back with me. Just pinged them to see if that worked...
