Re: Need to export Exchange Server to OpenLdap

But what I don't understand is that the two programs "gq" and "ldapbrowser" both can see the data.  I can search for people in the MS-Exchange Addressbook if I enter two search characters or more.  So these programs are intelligent enough to determine the schema themselves.  The problem is that these programs can't export the data to .ldif.

There's been professional articles about how to move from MS-Exchange to OpenLdap but the article didn't explain how to extract the data with an Ldap-client.

Guess I have to ask it really nice to the MS people in my company this time.

Re: Same for "slapcat".  Is there anybody who has done this before.
