Re: V2 --> V3 migration

I have to agree with Quanah.

I am running Debian Woody on almost all my boxes.

On some of them I have the OpenLDAP 2.0.23 Debian packages installed and
OpenLDAP 2.2.23 locally built in /usr/local. There is no problem at all.

Anyway you should install 2.2.23 from sources.
