Novell eDirectory 8.8 for All Platforms


Can the eDirectory dib be cloned from a 32bit version to a 64bit version?


The eDirectory dib is independent from the whether the platform is 32bit or 64bit.

The eDirectory dib can be cloned from a 32bit eDirectory server to a 64bit eDirectory server.

It is important to maintain the same eDirectory version on the target server that is installed on the source server. 

Example:  If eDirectory 8.8.5 32bit is installed on the source server, then eDirectory 8.8.5 64bit should be installed on the target server.

NOTE:  A change in architecture is not supported. 
Example: If the target server is running Solaris, the dib cannot be moved to Linux.  Both servers must be the same OS with the exception of 32bit to 64bit.
