Hello, I would like to migrate my old openldap server to 389-ds (CentOS 8). I tried to upload the old users from the openldap server into 389-ds, but if I then try to use the dsidm command I get the following error message: "Error: No object exists given the filter criteria ... "
Sort of... dsidm is an opinionated tool, and it does expect certain schema to be place to work correctly.# john, people, example.com dn: uid=john,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com objectClass: top objectClass: person objectClass: posixAccount objectClass: shadowAccount uid: john cn: John uidNumber: 5000 gidNumber: 5000 homeDirectory: /home/john shadowLastChange: 18170 loginShell: /bin/bash gecos: John Brown shadowExpire: 24444 sn: Brown Is it a schema problem?
Does dsidm only work with accounts that have the schema of DS 1.4? In 389-ds there is an openldap_to_ds migration script, but it seems to me that it keeps the same schema for the account after migration, at this point it is better to recreate all the accounts with the new DS 1.4 schema starting from the openldap data?
So yes as you noted below if the migration tool also added these objectclasses it would probably work:
objectClass: nsPerson (requires attributes: displayName and cn)
William did all the openldap migration work so I'd like to get his input on this, but to me it makes sense to have any "migration tool" we provide to be compatible with the CLI tools we ship. This should be a simple change to lib389 to get this working.
