To start, I am an OpenLDAP newbie. I hope my terminology is correct, but there's no guarantee.
I am trying to migrate our OpenLDAP server to a new box and, in the process, update our LDAP tree to accurately reflect our current organization name. When the original server was set up in 2004, our organization has a different name that has had to persist in our DNS records and other random places. I'm trying to get rid of that legacy name.
I have successfully migrated our original database from the original server to the new server. I am now trying to figure out how to move our Root DSE to the correct root-level DC. An example might help:
Current Root: (What it currently is)
New Root: (What it should become)
We use Apache Directory studio to manage our OpenLDAP server. When I tried to [naively] just change the root to the new name, I got this error:
-[LDAP: error code 71 - cannot rename between DSAs]
The part that I earlier had about neither tree showing up was an SELinux problem. The type was set wrong on the new database, which was causing neither tree to show up.
I am still having the problem of not being able to move between DSAs. How can I get around that?
