NAME - Directory Server perl script for restoring a backup

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


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


       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

       -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.

              Display verbose output

              Display usage

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


       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.
