My myldif looks like:
dn=Richard Stallman, o=PACOM, c=US
cn: Richard Stallman
department: Computer Hacking
dn=Bill Joy, o=... (continues with this
same format for the rest of our users)
The funny thing is that all this worked the first time through.
I couldn't believe it. I used the command "ldapadd ..." listed
below. Now our users on Unix Netscape and Outlook Express
can use the address book.
BTW, we're on a Solaris network. I put together the e-mail
addresses from our nis+ passwd file: "niscat passwd > output".
Then I used cut to get the correct info out of this multi-columned
file. Then I used the ldapTools perl module migrate_common.ph,
I think, from www.padl.com/tools.htm to create the myldif file.
You just need to edit the migrate_common.ph file replacing
items such as $DEFAULT_MAIN_DOMAIN, $DEFAULT_BASE,
etc. They make things so easy don't they. :) You can throw the
other junk like telephone numbers, etc, in from this script.
I remember thinking "thank god" for this perl script.

No. Not yet, but I have been archiving your notes from the
past few days because I'm planning to do so soon.
