Complete the following tasks before you migrate:
Familiarize yourself with the new features and functionality provided in Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0.
Read Chapter 1, Understanding the Product, in Sun Java System Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 Installation and Configuration Guide for installation and configuration information that you can use to plan your migration process.
Document your version 1.1 deployment and configuration. Be sure to note any customizations that you have made to the configuration.
Schedule migration. Because the migration process requires at least four hours, you might want to schedule migration after normal business hours.
If the input password or attribute changes while you are migrating the system, Identity Synchronization for Windows processes these changes as follows:
For Directory Server. Any password changes made on Directory Server during the migration process will not be synchronized. However, you can identify affected users in the Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 logs after completing the migration process. For more information, see Checking the Logs.
For Windows NT. Any password changes made on NT during the migration process will not be synchronized.
However, if you use the forcepwchg utility, you can identify affected users and force them to change passwords again. For more information, see Forcing Password Changes on Windows NT.
All other attribute changes made during the migration process (at any directory source) will be synchronized after the migration process.
