NAME

       bak2db.pl - Directory Server perl script for restoring a backup

SYNOPSIS

       bak2db.pl  -a  archivedir  [-Z  serverID] [-D rootdn] { -w password | -w - | -j filename }
       [-t dbtype] [-n backendname] [-P protocol] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       Restores a database from a backup. The Directory Server must be started prior  to  running
       this script.

OPTIONS

       A summary of options is included below:

       -a archivedir
              The directory of the archived database.

       -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.

       -D Root DN
              The Directory Manager DN, or root DN.  If not specified, the script will search the
              server instance configuration for the value.

       -w password
              The rootdn password.

       -w -
              Prompt for the rootdn password.

       -j password filename
              The name of the file that contains the root DN password.

       -t database type
              The backend database type (default: ldbm database).

       -n Backend Name
              The name of the LDBM database to restore.  Example: userRoot

       -P Protocol
              The  connection  protocol  to  connect  to  the  Directory  Server.   Protocols are
              STARTTLS, LDAPS, LDAPI, and LDAP.  If this  option  is  skipped,  the  most  secure
              protocol  that is available is used.  For LDAPI, AUTOBIND is also available for the
              root user.

       -h
              Display usage

EXAMPLE

       bak2db.pl -a /LDAP/backups/20130305/ -D 'cn=directory manager' -w password -n userRoot  -P
       LDAPS

              Note: security must be enabled to use protocol LDAPS.  If LDAPS is not available it
              will default to next strongest/available protocol automatically.

       bak2db.pl -a /LDAP/backups/20130305/ -Z instance2 -w password -n example -P LDAPI

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.
