If I can piggyback off of this question and ask another: advantages of using
RedHat Directory Server vs. Fedora Directory Server?
The only thing I can see we get with RedHat Directory server is
(and at the prices I was quoted per year, for two servers, I could hire half a
person, although academic pricing wasn't available at the time :)
The situation I'm in is one where I have an aging directory infrastructure,
going all the way back to the days when the Directory Server was branded with
the Netscape brand :) Its been on my TODO list to upgrade to something, for
the past two years, but I never got around to migrating to OpenLDAP, for a
number of reasons. With the release of RedHat/Fedora Directory Server, it was
a matter of installing it, adding a few schema modifications, exporting data
from the old server, and importing into the new. Simple as pie. I've been
running with that in a test environment for a month, no problems. And I'm
ready to plan out a full scale conversion and setup multimaster replication.
So am I missing anything obvious, beside official support, for what I
for Red Hat Directory Server?
