This document describes a number of ways in which Hitachi ID Password Manager can be used to ease system and directory migrations.
Examples of migrations include, but are not limited to:
- Upgrading a Novell NetWare / eDirectory environment to Windows 2008 / Active Directory.
- Moving from one mail system (e.g., Lotus Notes) to another (e.g., Microsoft Exchange).
- Replacing one LDAP directory product with another.
- Rolling out a new application that impacts a large user population, such as a self-service human resources (HR) portal.
As will be described below, Password Manager can assist in the initial activation of the new system or directory and in the transition period where both the old and new systems are active.
