LDAP Change in Upgrade from CRS XI to CRS 2008


We are in the process of upgrading from Crystal Reports Server XI R1 to Crystal Reports Server 2008 R1. Both systems are up and operational on separate Windows virtual servers. The old XI installation was using LDAP authentication from a SUN server. The new 2008 installation is using LDAP authentication from an IBM Directory Server.

The question that I have is related to using the Import Wizard. Since we have different third party LDAP authentication vendors and both are operating correctly right now, can we export all of the users, groups, folders, objects, instances, etc from the XI box to the 2008 box? I know we have to import everything together in order to preserve security, but will it work with different types of LDAP users? The LDAP group is different and I wasn't sure if CRS 2008 would recognize the users from the other LDAP group. I cannot find any documentation on changing LDAP server types for an import.
