has anyone migrated from Sun one directory server (DSEE 6.3) to OpenDJ?
is there a tip sheet on how to migrate?
I am simulating DSEE roles in OpenDJ, so I fear straight data replication will not work.September 16, 2015 at 6:57 pm #5517
There are many users and ForgeRock customers that have migrated from Sun DSEE to OpenDJ, some with dozens of servers, some even rolled OpenDJ to production in a couple of weeks.
You can find some information here: https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/66968-220527972
We also have some more in depth information on ForgeRock Knowledge Base (https://backstage.forgerock.com/#!/knowledge), but I don’t know how much is available for people who have signed in vs ForgeRock customers.
Anyway, replication is not possible between Sun DSEE servers and OpenDJ. The Sun DSEE replication model is proprietary even patented and protocols undocumented.

thanks for the response Ludo. looks like my company is blocking the linkedin link.
I may resort to writing a java pgm to read from DSEE and rebuild in DJ.September 16, 2015 at 8:54 pm #5519
You just need to export the data (without replication meta data) and reimport in OpenDJ. No need to write a program, it can be done from the command line.
If you need both systems live, you can synchronise the 2 services with products like OpenIDM or lsc-project (lsc-project.org).

Not so sure its that simple. the DSEE role simulation meant having to alter certain entries to have different objectClasses and attributesTypes, entries wont come across correctly.May 25, 2016 at 2:30 pm #10746dr01Participant
Do you happen to have a step-by-step guide?
I would also be very interested to have a case study of a company that successfully did the migration, if possible.
Thank you very much.May 26, 2016 at 1:18 pm #10791
I’m sorry, but we are relying on a network of integration partners to help our customers with such migrations. We don’t have detailed documentation on these successful migrations. But there are many companies that have done it successfully within very short time frames, with complex worldwide deployments (over 10 distributed replicated servers), with internal teams or with the help of service companies.
