Migrating from edirectory 8.8.5 to another LDAP server


Hello,

In the near future, we will be migrating off of edirectory onto another
LDAP server. The server is an IBM product, although I'm not sure of the
actual product name.

Anyway, is there any supported method for exporting users (including
passwords) from edirectory into an LDIF file or some other sort of
standard format that could be then imported into another LDAP store?

Thanks for any information,

Jeff

You could use Novel/NetIQ Identity Manager to push users from one
environment to almost any other, including an LDAP-compliant store.
Otherwise getting passwords is tricky. Even this option assumes you
have Universal Password (UP) implemented in your tree for any users you
want to migrate.

Good luck.

Supported? Probably not. But assuming you have Universal Password
implemented, you could use:

Changing from eDirectory to another directory service, you may need to
massage the LDIF file a bit, depending on what the destination expects.

It will be semi-messy: be prepared to massage (quite) a few attributes,
especially as to the way they may be used. It is mostly due to
differences in schema definition and IBM has a few "strange" ones. But
if you stick with the basics, such as first name, last name, phone
numbers, etc. you are mostly ok. If you have enabled Universal Password,
you can, with some tools, export it into an ldif along with the rest of
the attributes. One such tool is the ldapSearch gadget
(http://www.dreamlan.com/gadgets.html#ldapSearch).
