Still on DSEE? Try ForgeRock OpenDJ

This post in inspired by Ludovic Poitou’s reply to a thread in the ForgeRock OpenDJ Forum around DSEE to ForgeRock OpenDJ migration. Consider this to be just a hint, and not an answer. In a video log that’s embedded just below this write up, you’ll see some clues on a couple of different methods that you could consider to move away from a product that’s now in sustaining stage to ForgeRock’s Directory Services Solution. I don’t need to mention here how important a task it is to carefully draft a plan for migration from one product to another, and I’m sure you’ll not take this video log as the only reference while doing so.

So if you’ve half an hour to spare, you’ll see in the video:
Act 1:
– A ‘Flash Back’ on DSEE installation and configuration
– Exporting the data from the DSEE instance
– Installation & Configuration of ForgeRock OpenDJ
– Importing the DSEE instance backup to ForgeRock OpenDJ
Act 2:
– Installation of ForgeRock OpenIDM
– Configuration of External LDAP Server (DSEE instance) as a Managed Resource in ForgeRock OpenIDM (using samples)
– Configuration of OpenDJ instance as a Managed Resource in ForgeRock OpenIDM (using the UI)
– Reconciliation between the DSEE instance (source) and OpenDJ instance (target)


Four Engaging Days of Session On Directory Server

Feels so satisfied to have gone through an engaging four day session on Directory Server. Thanks to each of ’em in the photo below for pushing themselves to stay late on most of the evenings, including the concluding day to perform a neat ‘teach back’ session.

Special thanks to Ashish Adyanthaya for taking up the responsibility of capturing the ‘teach back’ session (most of it).
