Waiting on the script to finish it's update.
Running the script takes more then 10 mins to run.
Updating to 1.2.5 with the script is taking a very long time.


This is working as designed.  The update will require up to 2 hours to complete, depending upon amount of users and the size of the databases.


Major changes were made in 1.2.5.  The script is making major changes to the databases and requires a lengthy process to finish.

Additional Information

1.2.5 changes the unique ID for users in DataSync.  Originally, the UID was based off of the DN context of the users, this is being replaced with DataSync's own UID, and so, all the users have to be converted for this process.  This will depend upon how many users and how many entries have to be adapted.

It should also be noted, that initial installs with 1.2.5 will not take long at all, since there are no entries to update.
