These commands will export your data into an LDIF file. Replace everything in the [brackets] with your info.

Change to directory with scripts
# cd /usr/lib64/dirsrv/slapd-[TAB]

Dump data to ldif
# ./db2ldif -n userRoot -a /var/tmp/`date +%Y.%m.%d`.ldif

This step might be optional.. I think it should all ready have the 755 permissions when you dump it, but if not, do this...
# chmod 755 /var/tmp/`date +%Y.%m.%d`.ldif

Restore command
# ./ -v -D "cn=directory manager" -w PASSWORD -i /var/tmp/`date +%Y.%m.%d`.ldif -s dc=[YOUR],dc=[COM]

I would like to make a valid copy of the LDAP data so that I could restore it in another 389 installation in case of a crash. ¿What is the best way? I have tried the 389 commands but came across with issues.

Thank you.
