Migrate LDAP users to an internal directory

My company is relocating and I need to move JIRA application and database to a new server. The new server will be stand-alone and not part of a domain. In fact, the domain controllers are being decommissioned. I've successfully built a new server, installed the same version of JIRA (4.4) and restored my database to the new server, but now my LDAP users can not log in. Only my jira_admin user (which is the only user in the Internal Directory).

Is there a way to copy, migrate, or convert my LDAP users to the Internal Directory?

Thank you,

To fix this problem, I ended up just upgrading to version 5.2.

Once that was done, I was able to log in with an admin user from the internal directory, go to the "Users" tab and selected the "Migrate Users from one directory to another" feature. The URL is: http://localhost:8080/plugins/servlet/embedded-crowd/directories/migrate

Thanks for the other suggestions.

Did you update the osuser.xml and atlassian-user.xml in the upgraded JIRA with the previous JIRA's osuser.xml and atlassian-user.xml.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
