Now again the question - what is the best approach and practice to migrate users ?
AD administrators enabled SFU, and we got extended schema with POSIX attributes.
I guess there might be some free or commercial tools for extracting data from NIS and
loading into AD -ldap objects.
Our Linux users are dispersed in separated NIS domains, and all have AD account beside
the entry in NIS.
Home directories are NFS-mounted with autofs from Linux storage server but some
users access MSWin storage with smbclient.
Can you share experiences on assigning POSTFIX attributes in SSSD context, best practice
I assume you meant POSIX
We would not like activate NIS services on AD server for migration.
I don't know any tools to migrate users from NIS to AD myself, maybe
others on this list do.
In general starting with SSSD 1.9 you don't need to enable SFU and
populate the POSIX attributes at all, you can just use the SSSD
ID-mapping feature to map AD SIDs to UNIX IDs automatically. I'm not
sure if that's a good idea in your particular case, because most
probably the mapped attributes would be different than those you have
manually created in NIS. Just saying.
