Hi all,
I have some data in the database tables. How can I import that data into LDAP? I guess if I have LDIF file formatted dump then I can import the data into the LDAP right? I am using Sun Directory server 5.2.
Please let me know if there is a way. I am new to LDAP.
Thanks!
Maulin

Yes, LDIF is the normal way to load bulk load data into an LDAP server. I recall in the past using a CVS loader (which is essentially relational information) which transformed the input rows into LDIF entries using a simple template. That might be the general approach you want to take.
