Re: Really confusing responses (was: Re: Can't slapadd ldif file)
OK, after some fiddling I got migrate_all_online to mostly work. One of
which was just me making a stupid error...
Anyway, three other "things" I ran into that really don't make my
Friday, and so I'm running it by the experts. (Actually, this is
horrible, I'm asking so many freakin' questions, I feel like the people
who annoy me on the lists that I answer questions on. ::sigh:: Sorry
folks. I'll be putting up my notes on my website when I get this stuff
figured out if that's any consolation.)
OK, the first one is relatively simple. In order to make the migrate_all
script finish successfully I have to comment out the two lines where it
'imports' the 'protocols.' If I don't, I get:
adding new entry "cn=tp++,ou=Protocols,dc=stxe,dc=com,c=US"
ldap_add: Invalid DN syntax
additional info: invalid DN
ldif_record() = 34
/usr/bin/ldapadd: returned non-zero exit status
Now two observations here: one is the ++ which is obviously causing
ldap_add to have a cow, puke, convulse, and die a horrible painful
death. However, there are other areas where the script seemed smart.
Because I've seen stuff scroll be that's like:
adding new entry "cn=bla\+\+,ou=......"
So what's up with this one?
Second "issue" is that the scripts include a 'passwd' migration but not
"shadow" migration. Now my ultimate goal is to centralize user
authentication information (and hosts, and everything else), so this is
a bit problamatic. If I comment out the 'protocols' section as I
describe above, all my users are added in, but without userPassword
Lastly, right after a run the migrate scripts (even if they're
completely successfuly), I can't run slapcat, or I get,
slapcat: could not open database.
At a guess I'd say ldap is holding new info in memory and the DB files
have been marked as 'not valid' or something.
If I restart the ldap server, I *can* use slapcat again. I assume this
is normal, but I thought I'd mention it just incase.
