I currently have an LDAP directory (OpenLDAP), which does authentication for a bunch of services running across a number of servers.
Let's say the base DN is dc=oldcompany,dc=com.
I'd now like to change that to dc=newcompany,dc=com with minimal downtime on services that depend on it.
Is there some way of setting up an "alias" or something so that my services can access the directory through both the old and new DN while I'm reconfiguring everything?
What other alternatives should I consider? Is there any good documentation around for others doing such a rename? My Google-foo is failing to find anything.
