Not easy, and it depends on what you mean by convert.

A simple rpm update will give you issues because we still made minor
changes to the DIT and schema between the 1.9 alpha and the beta.

If you have many keys in your kerberos database I can describe a
procedure that *should* work to dump the keys and reload them in a new
server where you manually/script migrate the users/host/services data
by using the ipa user-add/host-add/srvice-add commands.
