I am trying to migrate from OpenLDAP to Fedora-DS. The LDAPImport
utility seems like the fastest and easiest way to do it. Unfortunately, for me, it fails.
At the command line, it reports:
"Can't call method "get_value" on an undefined value at
LdapConnectionManager.pm line 486, <STDIN> line 9."
The log file reports:
"LdapConnectionManager: Currently connected -- searching."
TCPdump, indicates that the base DN of my search is null. I do not
think this is relative, but when the script asks for the "email domain",
suggesting "netscaperoot", is that my normal e-mail domain? The example
confuses me. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
I haven't looked at the script, but it sounds like it first does a
search like this:
ldapsearch -s base -b "" objectclass=* namingContexts
to get a list of naming contexts on your server. When you setup Fedora
DS, it should have created a suffix like
You should probably use this one for your e-mail suffix, or domain.tld
for your e-mail domain. NetscapeRoot is only used for internal
operations (console, admin server) - it's not meant to be used by other
Which brings me to my current dilemma... Unable to use LDAPImport, I
the ol-schema-migrate.pl script, re-dir to a new file (i.e.,
perl ./ol-schema-migrate.pl inetorgperson.schema >
XXinetorgperson.ldif). What should I call those resulting files? I
assume I should call them *.ldif, but how do I determine what numeric
prefix to give them? The highest numbers I have currently are 60
(60pam-plugin.ldif), and then 99 (99user.ldif). Should I just number
mine counting up from 61?
You should not need to migrate standard schema files like
inetorgperson.schema or core.schema - Fedora DS should already have
those - unless you modified those schema files (but you wouldn't do
that). You should only have to migrate things like samba.schema (which
is not yet included with Fedora DS) or custom schema.
