NAME
ldif2db - Directory Server script for importing a LDIF file SYNOPSIS
ldif2db [-Z serverID] -n backendname {-s includesuffix}* [{-x excludesuffix}*] [-g [string] [-G namespace_id]] {-i ldiffile}* [-c chunk- size] [-O] [-E] [-q] [-h] DESCRIPTION
Imports a LDIF file. Either the option '-n' or '-s' must be used. The server instance must be stopped prior to running this command. OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below: -Z Server Identifier The server ID of the Directory Server instance. If there is only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped. -n Backend Name The name of the LDBM database to restore. Example: userRoot -s includeSuffix Specifies the suffixes to be included or specifies the subtrees to be included. -x excludeSuffix Specifies the suffixes to be excluded or specifies the subtrees to be excluded. -i filename Name for the LDIF file to import. -c Chunk size The number of entries to process before starting a fresh pass during the import. By default this is handled internally by the server. -O Requests that only the core database is created without attribute indexes. -g [string] Generates a unique ID. Type none for no unique ID to be generated and deterministic for the generated unique ID to be name-based. By default, a time-based unique ID is generated. When using the deterministic generation to have a name-based unique ID, it is also possible to specify the namespace for the server to use, as follows: -g deterministic namespaceId namespaceId is a string of characters in the format 00-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx. -G namespace_id Generates a namespace ID as a name-based unique ID. This is the same as specifying the -g deterministic option. -E Encrypts data during import. This option is used only if database encryption is enabled. -v Display verbose ouput -h Display usage EXAMPLE
ldif2db -Z instance1 -n userRoot -i /LDAP/ldif/data.ldif ldif2db -s "dc=example,dc=com" -i /LDAP/ldif/data.ldif DIAGNOSTICS
Exit status is zero if no errors occur. Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error. AUTHOR

NAME
db2ldif - Directory Server script for exporting the database SYNOPSIS
db2ldif [-Z serverID] {-n backend_instance}* | {-s includeSuffix}* [{-x excludeSuffix}*] [-a outputFile] [-m] [-M] [-r] [-u] [-U] [-C] [-N] [-E] [-1] [-q] [-h] DESCRIPTION
Exports the contents of the database to a LDIF file. This script can be executed while the server is still running, except when using the -r option. OPTIONS
A summary of options is included below: -Z Server Identifier The server ID of the Directory Server instance. If there is only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped. -n Backend Name The name of the LDBM database to reindex. Example: userRoot -s includeSuffix Specifies suffixes to be included in the LDIF file. -x excludeSuffix Specifies suffixes to be excluded from the LDIF file. -a Output File The name for the LDIF file. -m Minimize the base64 encodings in the exported LDIF file. -M Exported ldif is stored in multiple files. These files are named : <instance>_<filename> By default, all instances are stored in the filename specified by the -a option. -r Export replication data(information required to initialize a replica when the LDIF is imported). -u Do not export the unique-id attribute. -U Requests that the output LDIF is not folded. -C Uses only the main database file. -N Suppress printing sequential number -E Decrypts any encrypted data during export. -1 Deletes, for reasons of backward compatibility, the first line of the LDIF file that gives the version of the LDIF standard. -q Quiet mode. Suppresses output of the script. -h Display the usage. EXAMPLE
db2ldif -Z instance3 -n userRoot -a /LDAP/ldif/export.ldif db2ldif -s 'dc=example,dc=com' -a /LDAP/ldif/export.ldif -m -E -q DIAGNOSTICS
