NDS user to NDS

Hello
We have 5 Nw65sp3 running in a Tree.Now we want to install OES SP1.
We want to create a new Tree with only OES Servers.(We want to migrate all
Netware Servers to Oes Linux).
Now im searching for a Tool that migrate all Users from our old NDS-Tree to
the New Tree.

I don't know of any tool specifically, but you could just run an ldap
query with ldapsearch, save the results as an LDIF file, and re-import
them into the new tree. However, if you're not using Universal Password
yet, you can't migrate the passwords, which may not be a big deal
because you can just prompt for a new one on next login.

Re: NDS user to NDS

You don't need a new tree just to upgrade to Linux kernel.
(but you may have other reasons)

Take a hard look at the Migration/Consolidation tool - I suspect it will do
all you want. You'll be impressed.

Now do you have time to try it out and learn more about it in a lab
enviroment?
setup a server and then migrate to another box - so I guess you'll need a
workstation and two more boxes for servers. 512MB RAM for server boxes
should work fine.

Good point, I failed to mention that. Usually when people say they want
a new tree, it's because they screwed their old one up badly and wanted
to start fresh :).

Even old trees can be repaired / 'renovated'. This depends on the site
though. Sometimes for small sites it is not worth it to invest the money to
get it fixed.

Cheers,
