Re: Migration ..... subtree wth passwd

ok, sorry.

Oh, my second query.. i think i got the ans...... i did a slapcat and
checked the ldif file...the password is stored under attribute userPassword
...however in encrypted form.

however just to be sure, let me re-phrase the question with a proper example
since i brought it up in the first place:-
If my openldap tree structure is as per following with 3 main sub-tree o=A,
o=B and o=C:-

subtree o=A and o=C can be expanded to show all its serialNo entries with
its properties

however, for sub-tree B only ldap users under that tree can access it.
For each of the serialNo under o=B, I've set ldappasswd with the following
command in the current LINUX box:-
example: ldappasswd -x -S -D <dnentry> -w <password> -s <passwordtree>
serialnumber=1234, cn=BMIT, ou=X, o=B, c=MY

The userpassword that was encrypted would there be any problems should i use
it on a new LINUX machine with a new version of RedHat Linux and Openldap
running ? Logically is shouldn't but if you have any word of caution would
appreciate it.

slapcat the old master and slapadd the same LDIF on both new master and
new slave.

No idea what you are talking about.
