Back in 389-ds-base-1.3.3 we created a process to convert the DES reversible password plugin to AES. This was to aid customer's doing an "in-place" migration from RHEL 6 to RHEL 7. In 389-ds-base-1.4.x (RHEL 8) that is no "in-place' migration from RHEL 6 to RHEL 8. We also suggest using the export/import or replication migration methods as described in the installation/migration guide, which both of these methods bypass this conversion code & upgrade perl script.
I think it is safe to remove the upgrade script, the CI test, and the conversion code in daemon.c convert_pbe_des_to_aes().
Test case can live, but it needs to have a proper scope, i.e. skip on DS versions > 1.4.
