OpenLDAP as master of other vendors' directory servers?
We're thinking about using OpenLDAP as our "master" or primary
directory server. However, like a lot of folks, we need to run other
vendors' directory servers as well.
My primary question is if anyone is using OpenLDAP as a master and
replicating/synchronizing the data to a Netscape/iPlanet/Sun ONE/Sun
Java System Directory Server. Down the road, we may also need to
synchronize with Active Directory and Oracle Internet Directory.
I've heard of people using Sun ONE Directory as a master and
replicating data to Active Directory. And Oracle says its directory
server can be a spoke on another vendor's hub. But are people using
OpenLDAP as the hub?
I get the impression from this lists' archives that this is going to
require some custom programming. Are we talking about scripts to dump
and import LDIF files? Cooking something up using perl-ldap, JNDI, or
JLDAP? Are there ready-made scripts or other tools available to make
synchronizing data from OpenLDAP to Sun ONE as painless as possible?
