Can someone post the checklist for OpenLDAP to FDS migration? I see some
bit and pieces here and there about schema conversion, ldif porting and
copying some files.
It would be great if someone can post a detail message here or direct me to
a link for step-by-step guide.
Here’s the template:
1. Export the OpenLDAP database to LDIF.
2. Use awk to convert the OpenLDAP LDIF to a FDS format, taking care to note
any schema differenences.
3. Import the new LDIF to FDS.
4. Point your clients to the new DS.
Don't mean to sound facetious, but so much depends on your existing setup
that no guide you find will offer a lot of detail that applies wholly to
For Step (1) I just used an ldapsearch and piped the output to an ldif.
For Step (2) I wrote a couple awk scripts that rewrote the LDIF to match one
that I exported from FDS.
But my environment is just a few hundred users and OpenLDAP was only used
for authentication and simple groups.
