Messaging Server configuration data is stored under the DN o=netscaperoot. Directory Server skips over this DN when a Directory Server migration occurs.
For this reason, you cannot use standard Directory Server methods to migrate the configuration data. Instead, you must follow the steps in this document.
The Messaging Server version you are running may determine whether you need to use this document:
All versions of Messaging Server prior to version 6.0 store their data in the o=netscaperoot suffix.
Messaging Server 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2 (Sun ONE Messaging Server and Sun Java System Messaging Server) can store configuration data under the DN o=comms-config. Configuration data stored under this DN can be migrated using standard methods.
Messaging Server 6.3 stores configuration data in local files, not in the LDAP directory. If you are using Messaging Server 6.3 , this document will no longer apply.
Find out where your Messaging Server configuration data is located in the directory.
Run the configutil program to obtain the value of the local.ldapsiedn parameter, which shows the location of the configuration data. For details, see Step 2 in the procedure below.
If the configuration data is under the DN o=netscaperoot, follow all the steps in the procedure below.
If the configuration data is under the DN o=comms-config, you can use standard Directory Server methods and tools to migrate the data.
