       migratecred - Migrate credentials from one instance of Directory Server to another


       migratecred -o OldInstancePath -n NewInstancePath -c OldCredential [-p NewPluginPath]


       migratecred migrates credentials from one Directory Server instance to the other.

       New plugin path defaults to [libdir/dirsrv/plugins] if not given

       migratecred is a program that migrates credentials used for replication and chaining. That
       is the password used by the server to perform the simple  BIND  operation  for  server  to
       server communications.


       A summary of options is included below:

       -o OldInstancePath
              Path to the source instance

       -n NewInstancePath
              Path to the destination instance

       -c OldCredential
              Old credential

       -p NewPluginPath
              New plugin path (of the new instance)
