Sun Java System Communications Services 6 2005Q4 Schema Migration Guide

Running the Directory Server Setup Script

During the upgrade process, you run the Directory Server Setup Perl script ( to configure Directory Server 5.x for Messaging Server 6 and Calendar Server 6.

The script asks you to specify which schema version Directory Server is to use by setting the -t option, as follows:

Since you are upgrading your Messaging and Calendar servers before you migrate to Schema 2, you should specify Schema 1 at this stage. If you specify Schema 1 when you run, the upgraded servers will continue to use the existing schema without interruption.

If you also have installed Calendar Server 6 and have already run, you might not need to run the script again.

Note –

You only need to run once for each Directory Server used by the Messaging and Calendar servers. However, if you are not sure what to do, it will not hurt your system to run it again. In fact, the script checks to see if the current version has already been installed and will notify you.
