OpenLDAP (linux) to Windows ActiveDirectory

Hi,

is there a way to migrate from OpenLdap (Linux based) to Windows Active Directory?
It needs to migrate Users and Groups.


Thanks!

Ldif is a tool that can be used after you export the data from your LDAP, and then import it on the AD DC.

Your question means that your Openldap setup was not setup in AD schema.

Do you envision the need to register the computer objects as well?

hi arnold,

we have no computers in ldap, only users and groups.

do you know a tutorial for the tool ldfi and migrate to ad?

Ldif is the formatting of exported data

On the AD there are a similar tool to import from ldif file.

The discussion includes the reference to the ms command use guide.

It also covers the caveat that the password in openldap for a user might not meet the password complexity requirements, providing a means of mass resetting of the password to one from which the user will be required to change.

A similar mechanism, could be used to set the require password change on next logon enmass..
