6.4 Target Server Authentication Fails or Unable to Browse the eDirectory Tree in the Migration GUI

Description: If you execute the Migration GUI on a new OES 11 SP2 server, the target server authentication fails or the Services panel is unable to display eDirectory objects on browsing the tree or LDAP secure bind fails displaying an empty eDirectory tree.

The Migration Tool creates a private Java certificate store on first-time authentication to the target server. This store is used by Java Security Provider for all the SSL communications. When you launch the Migration Tool for the first time, the keystore does not exist, the LDAP bind fails during authentication or when performing an eDirectory search.

Action: The error is resolved on performing the following steps:

  1. Save the migration project.

  2. Close the Migration Tool GUI.

  3. Start the Migration Tool GUI.

  4. Start the migration project saved in Step 1.

  5. Configure the service.

    eDirectory objects are now available in the service GUI.
