23.3 Migrating FTP

Migration of FTP configuration can be done from the Migration Tool or through the command line interface.

NOTE:Before you start the Pure-FTPd server, ensure that eDirectory is up and running on the target server. This is to ensure that all the eDirectory users can be used for Pure-FTPd access. For the Server ID Swap, all eDirectory objects are migrated as part of the DIB migration step. For complete details on eDirectory migration, read Section 17.0, Migrating eDirectory to OES 2 SP3 Linux.

23.3.1 Using the Migration Tool

  1. Launch the Migration Tool in one of the following ways:

    Desktop: Click Computer > More Applications > System > Novell Migration Tools

    Terminal: Log in as the root user and at a terminal prompt, enter miggui

  2. Configure the source and target parameters.

    For details on configuring source and target server information, selecting a migration type, and the Open, Save Project, and all other tool buttons, see Section 2.0, Overview of the Migration GUI.

  3. Select Novell FTP from Services and click Configure. The status now changes from Not Configured to Ready.

  4. When the status is Ready, click Migrate to start the migration process.

    The status changes from Migrating to Migrated on success.

    NOTE:Use the Status > Logs tab to check for errors during migration. Fix the errors and restart the migration procedure if necessary.

23.3.2 Using the Command Line

  1. Run the FTP migration utility from the command line with the required parameters:

    migftp -s <source_server>

    For example:

    migftp -s

    If the migration is successful, a message indicating success is displayed.

  2. Start the eDirectory server to allow eDirectory users to log in.

  3. Start the FTP server by using the rcpure-ftpd start command.
