I think the best way would be to use the "ipa migrate-ds" command. It should
work both with stand alone Directory Servers and IPA too. You may just need to
play with --userignoreobjectclass amd userignoreattribute to not migrate
Kerberos related attributes and objectclasses if for example your other DS has
a different realm.
