Convert buddy list from Domio LDAP to AD
Ben Williams 03:12 PM
Sametime Standard 8.0.2 All Platforms


We have a couple of very old ST 8.0.2 servers (I know!) which I have recently taken ownership off. I have built a replacement but am planning the migration to the version 9 servers.

I don't think there is a way, outside of paying for it to be done by a third party, to remap the buddy lists in a format for AD. Even if I could then I would need to also resolve the members and groups.

Currently the entries in vpuserinfo use peoples DN eg CN=Ben Williams, OU=xx, O=xx. My AD DN is CN=Ben Williams,OU=xx,OU=xx,OU=xx,OU=xx,DC=xx,DC=xx,DC=xx,DC=xx.

I can't think of a way to resolve them to the AD format apart from blanking the buddy lists and using Epilio's free tool to automatically populate buddy lists with a few groups or having users add the groups they want themselves.

Any ideas?
