Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.3 Migration Guide

About the Automatic Migration Tool

The migration tool, dsmig, is delivered with the Directory Server 6.3 packages. When these packages have been installed, dsmig is located in install-path/ds6/bin.

dsmig must be run on the machine on which the new Directory Server instance will be located. When the command is run, a migration directory is created within the new instance directory (new-instance-path/migration). This directory is a repository for data produced by the migration, including log files and migration status files.

dsmig includes a set of sub-commands and options, that map to the individual migration steps described in Outline of Migration Steps. For information about the usage of dsmig, see dsmig(1M).
