NAME

       db2ldif.pl - Directory Server perl script for exporting a database to a LDIF file

SYNOPSIS

       db2ldif.pl  [-Z serverID] [-D rootdn] { -w password | -w - | -j pwfilename } [-P protocol]
       {-n backendname}* | {-s includeSuffix}* [{-x excludeSuffix}*] [-m]  [-M]  [-r]  [-u]  [-C]
       [-N] [-E] [-1] [-U] [-a filename] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       Exports  the  contents  of  the  database  to  LDIF.  This  script creates an entry in the
       directory that launches this dynamic task.

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.

       -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.

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

       -s includeSuffix
              The suffix DN to be included in the exported LDIF file.

       -x excludeSuffix
              The suffix DN to be excluded from the exported LDIF file.

       -a filename
              Name for the exported LDIF file.

       -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.

       -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.

       -h
              Display usage

EXAMPLE

       db2ldif.pl -Z instance3 -n userRoot -a /LDAP/ldif/export.ldif -P STARTTLS

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

       db2ldif.pl -s 'dc=example,dc=com' -a /LDAP/ldif/export.ldif -m -E -q

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.
