Sun Java System Calendar Server 6 2005Q4 Administration Guide


The commdirmig utility migrates your LDAP data from Sun LDAP Schema 1 to Schema 2 in preparation for using Access Manager for authentication services.

This section contains the following topics:

Who Should Run the Utility

If you previously used a version of Messaging Server 5 or Calendar Server 5, your LDAP entries were formatted Schema 1. In your new Calendar Server 6 2005Q4 environment, if you are going to use Access Manager for authentication, you must convert your LDAP entries to Schema 2 format by running this utility.

If you are not using Access Manager, you should still consider migrating your LDAP data, since Schema 2 is the preferred LDAP mode for all Java Enterprise System products that use LDAP. In the future it is possible that newer versions of the communications products (Calendar, Messaging and Instant Messaging) may not support Schema 1. However, the migration can be deferred until a later, more convenient time if you are not going to be using Access Manager at this time.

Note –

If you have a separate LDAP directory for preferences, you must run commdirmig on that LDAP as well as the one used for authentication.

When to Run the Utility

If you are migrating from a pre-Java Enterprise System version of Calendar Server, run this utility after you run cs5migrate, csmig and csvdmig.

Where to Find Documentation

The commdirmig migration utility requires special preparation and planning. It is documented in a separate guide, see Sun Java System Communications Services 6 2005Q4 Schema Migration Guide.

Where to Find the Utility

The commdirmig utility comes bundled with Delegated Administrator that you install from the Java Enterprise System installer.

A patch is also available from technical support for the utility.
