ICE: Performing a Comma-Delimited Export
Articles and Tips: tip
01 Jul 2002
To perform a comma-delimited export with the Novell Import/Convert/Export (ICE) utility, use a command similar to the following:
ice -SLDAP -sserver1.acme.com -p389 -dcn=admin,c=us -wpassword -lobjectClass=* -csub -DDELIM -f/tmp/server1.csv -Forder.csv
This command line performs a subtree search for all objects on the server server1.acme.com at port 389 using the identity cn=admin,c=us, and password "password." It also outputs the data in comma-delimited format to the /TMP/SERVER1.CSV file.
Performing a Data Migration between LDAP Servers through ICE
To perform a data migration between LDAP servers, combine the LDAP source and LDAP destination handlers. An example of this follows:
ice -S LDAP -s server1.acme.com -p 389 -d cn=admin,c=us -w password -F objectClass=* -c sub -D LDAP -s server2.acme.com -p 389 -d cn=admin,c=us -w secret
This particular command line performs a subtree search for all objects in the server server1.acme.com at port 389 using the identity cn=admin,c=us with the password "password." It also sends the output to the LDAP server server2.acme.com at port 389 using the identity cn=admin,c=us and the password "secret."
