What versions? Migrating a standard RH9 2.0 slapcat to Openldap 2.1.x
last summer was not pleasant; spaces that shouldn't have been there had
to be removed, intuition played a large role and ruthlessly deleting and
rewriting intransigent records was de rigeur. An extended knowledge of
vi's macro possibilities and/or sed is a great help. Mutating +- 300
Posix account/group/Samba 2 records by hand was half a day's work.

I've noticed that upgrades from Openldap 2.1 to 2.2 go much more easily.
