Over the past couple of months, I have been involved with migrating remote NetWare servers to Open Enterprise Server 2 (OES2) Linux. During this time, there are some lessons that have been learned that hopefully this article will be able to help you, the reader, perform your own migrations more smoothly and avoid some of the pitfalls we encountered.

Jarek Gawor's excellent LDAP Browser/Editor v2.8.2 - though last updated in 2001, still one of the best! All previous download links seem to be broken, so here's a refresh for all who prefer superfast and minimalistic tools like me.
Do you have Macintosh users authenticating to their OS X workstations through eDirectory? Use this loginHook script to grant them access to the local machine by group and to populate GroupWise with their PO login settings.

Frustrated that Users and Helpdesk are complaining about password sync and login issues? Can't seem to pinpoint whats causing issues? LogiTester has been devised to help with just that problem. It allows you to supply a username and password and simultaneously authenticate to several trees to find out where ldap authentication is breaking down.
For a while now I have wanted to see how many controls eDirectory really could handle, even if they were not supported. It should be mentioned loudly and clearly that as of eDirectory 8.8.5 some of these controls work but THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTED so if they do not work properly submit a bug or an enhancement but don't expect a quick response. Also for some of these there are definite limitations with how they work. I'll try to cover those as I go.
How fast can logins happen from a single client? How can I generate events for auditing for testing purposes? How much load can a single client put on eDirectory? Find out all that and more with one quick script: ldapbind.pl
