I am currently having same problems. What I thought that transition
from sun dsse to redhat Directory Server is more easy since it is both
Netscape ldap based (no need to rewrite your schema files.)

It would surprise me if getting schemas that work will be the big
issue for this transition.

Hi, I have currently been given the task of migrating our current LDAP
environment from Sun DSEE (6.3.1) to OpenLDAP.

I have done some research on this topic, and suspect its not a trivial
task, and am hoping for some pointers/advise from anyone that may have
attempted this in the past...

I'm not sure that replication between the two is an option (although would
love it if it was :), so I have looked into exporting the current DSEE
environment to a LDIF, and attempted to then import it into openldap
(using slapadd), but ran into a few issues...

The issue I'm currently stuck on is getting the data in the LDIF into a
format that can be imported using slapadd. Currently, I have issues with
automounts, pwdReset attribs etc etc...

Why can't you just use ldapsearch on the existing directory and use that
as input to slapadd?

Of course, that only gets you the data.  I would bet that the real issue
will be getting the access controls correct.


Any help would be appreciated.
