I am currently in the process of migrating from a LDAP server to IPA
installed on a Centos 8 instance.
I been following these instructions on importing users from the LDAP
but it's asking for the Directory Manager password, I took over position
very recently and there is a password which is supposed to be for that
account but it's not accepted.
Is it possible with the ipa migrate-ds to specify another user, i'd say
no since the docs doesn't mention anything but I thought that I ask, or
is it possible to use a ldif file to import the users?
It's on the link you provided:
By default, the DN "cn=Directory Manager" is used to bind to the
remote LDAP directory. Pass the --bind-dn option to the command to
specify a custom bind DN. For further information, see Section 184.108.40.206,
It is not recommended to import using an ldif.
