yes, I did before.
You need to copy some legacy schema stuff, for the rest it is pretty straight forward.
Just make an ldif dump, setup the new directory server and try an import.
You will encounter any missing stuff by trial and error.
check the log files and see how you go :).

Hello there, I wanted to see if anyone else out there has gone through a migration/upgrade from Sun One Directory 5.2 server to 389 DS?

I'm currently working on doing just that at my organization and I've been running into a few snags. Ideally we'd want to setup a 389 consumer replica attached to our Sun One master. Over time we replace the Sun One replicas with 389 replicas until eventually all servers are 389 DS.

Anywho, I do have a 389 DS consumer replica that appears to be replicating from our Sun One master, however I'm seeing a number of LDAP error 53 (server was unwilling) errors. When I upped the log level it looks like the master is trying to do an ldapadd when it should be doing an ldapmodify. So that's where I'm slightly stuck now, if anyone out there has any ideas.
