10.0 Migrating from Kanaka for eDirectory to Novell Kanaka for Mac

Use the following procedures to migrate Condrey Corporation’s Kanaka for eDirectory 2.5 or 2.6 to Novell Kanaka for Mac 2.8.

  1. Follow the procedures in Section 5.0, Installing and Configuring the Engine in the Novell Kanaka for Mac Installation and Administration Guide.

  2. When you are prompted to start the service do not do so until directed in Step 8.

  3. On the server running the Condrey Corporation Kanaka for eDirectory Engine, locate and copy the following files from the /var/opt/condreycorporation/kanaka/engine/data directory to the /var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/data directory on the Novell Kanaka for Mac Engine:

    • clients.dat

    • policy.dat

    • storage-resources.dat

    • userindex.dat

    cp /var/opt/condreycorporation/kanaka/engine/data/*.dat \ /var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/data

  4. On the server running the Condrey Corporation Kanaka for eDirectory Engine, locate and copy the kanaka.conf file from the /etc/opt/condreycorporation/kanaka/engine/config/ directory to the /etc/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/config/ directory on the Novell Kanaka for Mac Engine:

    cp /etc/opt/condreycorporation/kanaka/engine/config/kanaka.conf \ /etc/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/config/kanaka.conf

  5. Edit the /etc/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/config/kanaka.conf file so that no data paths point to the old location.

    For example:

    <DataPath>/var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/data</DataPath>

    <WebRoot>/var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/data/www</WebRoot>

    <Path>/var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/log</Path>

  6. Shut down the Condrey Corporation Kanaka for eDirectory Engine by entering rckanakaengined stop.

    WARNING:You must shut down the previous instance of the Kanaka Engine because once the new Kanaka Engine starts, it resets the proxy object's password, and thus causes any new connections to the previous instance of the Kanaka Engine to fail.

  7. On the server running the Condrey Corporation Kanaka for eDirectory Engine, locate and copy the following file from the /var/opt/condreycorporation/kanaka/engine/data/state/salt.dat directory to the /var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/data/state/salt.dat directory on the Novell Kanaka for Mac Engine:

    cp /var/opt/condreycorporation/kanaka/engine/data/state/salt.dat \ /var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/data/state/salt.dat

  8. On the server running the Novell Kanaka for Mac Engine, start the service by entering rcnovell-kanakaengined start.

  9. Check your log file for any errors by viewing the file at /var/opt/novell/kanaka/engine/log/novell-kanakaengined.log.

  10. Uninstall the Condrey Corporation Kanaka for eDirectory Engine RPM by entering:

    rpm -q -a | grep kanaka

    and then:

    rpm -e kanaka-engine-2.x.x-xx
