Re: changing the base dn
It's not clear to me what data you actually have hosted on each server
currently, and where you expect what data to be in the long run.
My current best guess is that NS has 'o=x,c=us' on disk and you're looking
to turn it off, while OL has 'dc=group1,dc=x,dc=y' on disk, and you're
looking to add 'o=x,c=us' to OL.
In this case, add a relay from 'o=x,c=us' to 'dc=group1,dc=x,dc=y' in the
OpenLDAP server, and turn off the Netscape server.
See the slapd-relay(5) man page, and the recent thread on rewriting
for some just-short-of-usable examples. (Just because they didn't work out
for Quanah doesn't mean they won't necessarily work out for you.)
If this was completely off base from what you wanted, you can hold out for
other replies, but you'd be better served by reposting a more precise
inquiry. At a minimum, I could be confusing "redirect" as "rewrite" when
you want "referral." That would be quite different...

If I have an old base dn of uid=jdoe,o=x,c=us and I want

what is the best way to do this? The old base is on an old netscape
server and the new one is on openldap 2.3.27. Thanks!
