If you're saying that you somehow imported a 2.0 directory into 2.2, then
it's guaranteed not to work, as a lot of attributes that were ignored by
2.0 are now strictly enforced.

I have a Perl script that massages a 2.0 LDIF file into 2.1 (don't know
how it works with 2.2) but you'll need to customise it somewhat.


It keeps things in-core, so may not work on humungous directories.  There
is support for tied dbms, but I couldn't get it to work.
