Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104585
migrate_base.pl broken with dc=X,dc=Y,dc=Z configuration
Last modified: 2012-10-15 04:47:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The /usr/share/openldap/migration/migrate_base.pl script doesn't handle
three-part domain component suffixes properly. Given the following settings:
...then running migrate_all_offline.sh errors out with
slapadd: database (dc=foo,dc=example,dc=com) not configured to hold
If you run migrate_base.pl by itself, the reason becomes clear. The first two
entries in the LDIF output are:
The 'dn: dc=example,dc=com' entry should NOT be generated by the script, for the
same reason that the script does not generate a 'dn: dc=com' entry.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Still true in RHEL 3 final openldap-servers-2.0.27-11
it's 2005 and a version of RHEL later (4), and this is still unresolved. why do you ship these migration
scripts if they're not robust enough to handle a three level domain name? weak...
still true for openldap-servers-220.127.116.11....is there any kind of work around so
I can do a migration
Roger, you can run the migrate_base.pl migration by hand and then edit the
resulting output to remove the bogus entry, which I believe should be the first
one on the list. Then manually import the edited LDIF file with ldapadd.
