I'm not sure if you need to migrate anything from the system partition,
except if you added custom objects. (Ok, I see now that your mzu_adm
user existst in the system partition)

Yes, we plan to add a "re-order" feature for LDIFs. but multiple
re-imports should do the job ;-)

Ok, you should can't add operational attributes (in your case:
accessControlSubentries, createTimestamp, creatorsName). They are
created by the server.

I think that this entry wasn't created but I don't know why you get a
"OK". I'll check tomorrow if this is a server or studio problem.

Are the sub-entries included in your LDIF? You need to export "normal
entries" and "subentries" separately. You could export the latter by
selecting "Subentries Control" in the export wizard.
