Re: Importing of data

Rule of thumb, consider migrating platforms (i.e. your Solaris to Linux case) the same as an OpenLDAP upgrade, even if it's 2.2.20 -> 2.2.20. As such,


applies, as do many of the tips in the FAQ-O-Matic upgrade area.

With that said, running 2.2.20 on your new installation is a pretty awful idea. There are known security holes. If you're going to be messing around with your OpenLDAP installation anyway, you should run an upgrade to the latest 2.3 release at the same time.

I am totally new to openldap. I have an openldap 2.2.20 running on
solaris 8. I needed to install and migrate it to linux. I have
suuceesfully comiled and installed openldap 2.2.20 on redhat linux.
Now I am unable to understand what do I have to do inorder to migrate
all the data. I have already copied the schema files and edited the
slapd.conf file according to what it was on the solaris machine. I
have a vague idea that I will have to migrate the db files some how,
may be using ldiff...On my solaris machine I do have the data folder
which contains all the db files, should I just copy those in the
openldap-data folder on linux machine? If any one can please point me
into right direction...

thanks and regards
