Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:
if a customer wishes to migrate data from a directory that uses non-standard schema or layout they will need to export their data and map it into this input format.

I don't expect this to be extensive, but I don't know

afaik this is handled by scripts and is part of the migration effort, is that right?
Comment 4 Pavel Zuna 2010-02-01 10:23:29 EST
As long as users have the 'person' objectClass and groups have the 'groupOfUniqueNames' objectClass, everything should go fine with no additional work. Users only need to import their custom objectClasses and attributes to the IPA schema if they want to continue using them. Honestly, we only tested migration on DS with the default schema. If someone would provide me with a custom schema, I'll do more tests. In any case, search filters and handlers for objects being migrated can be customized easily, although it required some programming skills.
