For companies that are migrating from a Sun/Oracle server to the PingDirectory Server, the PingDirectory Server provides a dsconfig batch file, sun-ds-compatibility.dsconfig, which describes the various components that can be configured to make the server exhibit behavior closer to a Sun/Oracle configuration.

Administrators can use the sun-ds-compatibility.dsconfig batch file to apply the Directory Server’s configuration with the necessary dsconfig commands. Simply uncomment the example commands listed in the file, and then run the dsconfig command specifying the batch file. Note that this batch file is not comprehensive and must be used together with the migrate-sun-ds-config tool, located in the bin folder (or bat folder for Windows systems) during the migration process. Both the tool and the batch file overlap in some areas but provide good initial migration support from the Sun/Oracle server to a Ping Identity server.

Another useful tool is the migrate-ldap-schema tool in the bin folder (or bat folder for Windows systems), which migrates schema information from an existing LDAP server onto this instance. All attribute type and object class definitions that are contained in the source LDAP server will be added to the targeted instance or written to a schema file.
