Description:

We need to be able to migrate Account Templates from our test to production environment. Is there a method for isolating these safely in an LDAP export? It appears they have unique GUIDs and we are unsure of the ramifications of exporting/importing them using an LDAP browser.

Solution:

The safest thing to do would be to recreate the templates manually in the Identity Manager GUI or Provisioning Manger interface.
However, you could consider also doing the following:

  1. Use an LDAPSEARCH command and specify only the attributes you want to export from the test environment.
  2. Run the resulting LDIF from #1 through an ldapadd via port 20389 into the provisioning server.

#2 will add the add the objects and recreate the eTID values and then you would need to modify the templates to add the endpoint reference and set the account containers.
