In the following example, the company acquires Sample Corporation. During the merger, migrates data from Sample’s o=sample rooted directory, converting Sample’s sampleAccount auxiliary object class usage to’s exampleAccount object class for entries rooted under dc=example,dc=com. Knowing that it can take considerable time for Sample’s directory clients to become aware of the new DIT and schema, proxy data transformations are created to give the Sample clients as consistent a view of the data as possible during the migratory period. These transformations allow the clients to search and modify entries under o=sample using the Sample Corp. schema.
