The commdirmig utility migrates your LDAP data from Sun Java System LDAP Schema version 1 to Schema version 2 in preparation for using Access Manager for authentication services. If your previous installation already used Schema version 2, you do not have to run this utility again.
This migration utility migrates your Schema version 1 LDAP database to Schema version 2. If you are going to use Access Manager software for authentication, you must convert your LDAP entries to Schema version 2 format by running this utility.
If you are not using Access Manager, you should still consider migrating your LDAP data, since Schema version 2 is the preferred LDAP mode for all Communications Suite products that use LDAP.
If you have a separate LDAP directory for preferences, you must run commdirmig on that LDAP as well as the one used for authentication.
Run commdirmig after you have run all the other migration utilities necessary to migrate your calendar and LDAP databases from your earlier version of Calendar Server software to the 6.3 version of the Calendar Server software.
The commdirmig migration utility requires special preparation and planning. It is documented in a separate guide, see Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Schema Migration Guide.
The commdirmig utility comes bundled with Delegated Administrator that you install from the Communications Suite installer.
A patch is also available from technical support for the utility.
