Hi guys,

Has anyone here been able to migrate from NDS to Openldap sucessfully?
If so, can you point to a few documents or web pages regarding how to do
this without losing data? Any help anyone could provide would be greatly

Well, the first thing to do is dump the Netscape database to LDIF format. After that, I'd look at the data you've generated, and see what schema's you'll need to include with OpenLDAP, and see if there is any Netscape generated attributes you can drop out.
