I am migrating an openLDAP tree into ipa, and when I run ipa migrate-ds, the

I’ve run it in debug mode, which only provides this:

Initially, it had transferred 2000 records and stopped, until I set
nsslapd-sizelimit in cn=config:

nsslapd-sizelimit: 20000

I then re-ran the migration a dozen times, each time it would transfer more
records, but would always time out at around the 36 second mark.  Now that I’m
at 9762 records, it seems to have reached a peak.

I suspect this is another tunable, but haven’t been able to find it, any
document that mentions it, or anyone else hitting this issue.

RHEL 7.0 server

idM ipa-server-3.3.3-28

source is RHEL 6.5 running openldap-2.4.23-34

command used to migrate:

ipa migrate-ds --continue --bind-dn="uid=me,ou=people,ou=foo,dc=example,dc=com"
--base-dn="ou=foo,dc=example,dc=com" ldap://10.x.x.x:389



Ludwig, do you know? I am just thinking it may be also caused by some form of timelimit, as mentioned in


(those apply both for bind DNs and global cn=config). Maybe nsslapd-timelimit could be increased? Although I saw the default is 3600, I assume it means 1 hour, i.e. not being the root cause.
