Simple backup and restore LDAP

At its simplest form this is how you do it…

To backup use:

Note: It is recommended to stop the ldap server before backing it up using slapcat
/usr/sbin/slapcat -l /path/to/dump/dumpfile.ldif

To restore on new server:

1. Backup existing ldap
/usr/sbin/slapcat -l /usr/local/backups/$DATE/ldap-11june09.ldif

2. Stop ldap service
service ldap stop

Move contents from /var/lib/ldap to some other backup directory

3. Overwrite old config from ldap-old.ldif | This will ask for ldap password.
slapadd -l /path/to/ldap-old.ldif -w

4. Change ownership
chown -R ldap /var/lib/ldap

5. Start ldap service
service ldap start
