I suggest you start by following the Quick Start Guide.

These migration tools, and this script, are not part of OpenLDAP

Not OpenLDAP Software.

Generally wise to take small steps.... starting as suggested above.

That's a topic for another list.

You should follow the quick start guide.

I would guess that you are not using the tool as intended or
that the tool is not working as intended.  You should consult
with the tool's documentation (and/or code) to see if you
are using it properly and whether its working as intended.
Any issues you might have with the tool should be directed
to a forum supporting the tool.  Not sure what forum that
would be, check the documentation (and/or code).
