DSfW migration follows the Transfer ID migration process. For more information about Transfer ID, see Section IV, Transfer ID Migration.
Follow the instructions given below to perform the migration:
Install and configure eDirectory with pre-migration pattern on the target server.
NOTE:You must ensure that the target server is installed only with Novell eDirectory and the Novell pre-migration pattern. Novell pre-migration and Novell eDirectory pattern must be installed using Software Management tool provided by the YaST utility.
If services such as iPrint, NSS, and SMS are configured on the DSfW server that is migrated, then configuration data related to these services will also be migrated as part of the DSfW migration process. However, migration of service‐specific data needs to be migrated as per the migration procedure for a particular service. For information on migrating iPrint, see Section 27.0, Migrating iPrint to OES 11 SP1. For information on migrating NSS, see Section 16.0, Migrating File Systems to OES 11 SP1.
If the source server has proxy user configured for services such as LUM, see Section 32.0, Migrating Proxy users to OES 11 SP1.
Install the DSfW pattern on top of the preexisting patterns on the target server but do not configure it.
Reboot the target server.
Ensure that you have copied the SSH keys to avoid multiple password prompts:
Enable SSH on the source server and the target server.
Enter the # ssh-keygen -t rsa command on the target server.
When you are prompted to enter the file in which to save the key, press Enter.
The ssh keys are stored in the default location (/root/.ssh/id_rsa).
When you are prompted to enter the passphrase, leave it empty for no passphrase, then press Enter.
Copy the key value (the output of the # ssh-keygen -t rsa command) to the source server using the following command:
ssh-copy-id -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@source-ip-address
Where -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub is the output of # ssh-keygen -t rsa command.
Replace <source-ip-address> with the IP address or the hostname of the source server.
Run the DSfW migration script on the target server. The purpose of this script is to migrate the DSfW-specific data to the target server.
./opt/novell/xad/sbin/migrate_dsfw.pl -s <source-ip-address>
The migration script invokes the miggui tool.
The Transfer ID operation migrates eDirectory, LUM, and other associated services of the source server. For more information, see Section 10.4, Select the Source and Target Server and the Migration Type.
Reboot the target server.
Verify if all the daemons are up and running by executing the following command:
Run the following command to verify if the schema has been extended, rights on the domain controller objects have been added, and the unique domain id on the domain root has been added.
