Exporting from ZimbraLDAP to OpenLDAP

Postby intermikrum » Wed Jul 27, 2016 8:57 am

Hello,

We are using Release 8.6.0_GA_1153.RHEL7_64_20141215151110 RHEL7_64 FOSS edition, and would like to migrate from LDAP to OpenLDAP.
We ran these commands:
# /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapcat /tmp
# /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapcat -c /tmp
# /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmslapcat -a /tmp

Then we got an ldap.bak file, however, we cannot import it into OpenLDAP. We searched a lot on the internet but my issue is still unsolved. How could we create ldif backup from ZimbraLDAP?

You can't "move" the users to openldap but you can use it as an external authentication server and the users details/accounts will still exist on ZCS. You need to create whatever users/structure you like on there that meets your company's requirements and set it as the external authentication for ZCS.
