moving ldap-db via file-copying?
I hope you can help me, migrate my old ldap-db, problem is this:
Our old server was running with ldap2.2.7? to serve as backend to the
sambaserver and as of today its refusing to work or give errors
(the ldap-daemon seems to start, but doesn't open the port, is not
accessible, gives no errors and has to be killed, because stopping it
gives no reaction)
now, i've set up a new machine, to use ldap, given it the same suffix, cn,
etc. the version of ldap is a newer one, than on the old box, although
i'm not sure, how far they are removed.
is it in some way possible, to just copy the files in /var/lib/ldap/ from
the old server and insert them into the new box in the same folder? if so,
which files would be ok to overwrite, which not? or woul i have to tweak
some other files for that as well?
or is this completely inconceivable (as i dread is the case), and if yes,
how am i to get the files from the old server to the new one?
any help on this would be greatly appreciated
