Migrating Samba 3 with OpenLDAP to Win2k8 R2 AD

    Question

  • Hi,

    I need to migrate users and client computers from a Samba + OpenLdap Domain to a New Active Directory on Win2k8R2.

    I don't have any experience with Samba nor OpenLdap, so bear with me please.

    Some Samba Servers will remain after we have migrated the users and client computers to the AD domain.

    The Samba Servers host files to which the clients map drives. like home folder etc.

    I have read that ADMT 3.1 can be used from a win2k8 box to migrate the users and computers from the Samba domain to the MS Domain.

    http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2005-June/107028.html

    But OpenLDAP is not mentioned there, So my question is:

    Can ADMT do the migration from Samba 3 + OpenLDap to MS AD Win2k8 R2

    Will the migrated users be able to access the old Samba servers when using SidHistory

    Thanks for your replies.
