Hi there guys.
I was just wondering if there is a tool to convert an ldbm database to the new bdb backend.
HI, I duno about any tools but its very easy to migrate from idbm to back-bdb if you search the archives of few days back you will find a thread in which it was discussed, and i had successfully migrated our openldap to back-dbd.
here is the short summary of steps for this..
Migrate to BDB or HDB. Here's the rough idea:
slapcat -f /path/to/slapd.conf -l mydb.ldif
Change your database to a new directory.
Read about tuning, cache sizing, and other stuff.
Read openldap man pages.
Read oracle's tuning docs for bdb.
Re-Read openldap man pages.
slapadd -f /path/to/slapd.conf -l mydb.ldif
Fix permissions on /var/run so the slapd user can write there -- this
one is pretty easy
