Chapter 5. Migrating Legacy Data to LDAP
This chapter covers migration tools available for transitioning from your current NIS or NIS+ environment to an LDAP-based one.
As discussed in Chapter 2 “Assessing Your Needs for Naming Service Transition and Consolidation,” there are two approaches that you can take to transition from legacy naming services to LDAP-based services. One approach is to replace your NIS/NIS+ clients with the Secured LDAP Client. The second approach is to keep your current NIS/NIS+ clients and deploy a transition tool to gain access to LDAP naming service data.
