NAME - Directory Server perl script for exporting a database to a
       LDIF file

SYNOPSIS [-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] [-v] [-h]


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


       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

       -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.

              Minimize the base64 encodings in the exported LDIF file.

              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.

              Export replication data(information  required  to  initialize  a
              replica when the LDIF is imported).

              Do not export the unique-id attribute.

              Requests that the output LDIF is not folded.

              Uses only the main database file.

              Suppress printing sequential number

              Decrypts any encrypted data during export.

              Deletes,  for  reasons of backward compatibility, the first line
              of the LDIF file that gives the version of the LDIF standard.

EXAMPLE  -Z  instance3  -n  userRoot  -a  /LDAP/ldif/export.ldif  -P

              Note:  security  must  be  enabled to use protocol STARTTLS.  If
              STARTTLS  is   not   available   it   will   default   to   next
              strongest/available protocol automatically. -s 'dc=example,dc=com' -a /LDAP/ldif/export.ldif -m -E -q


       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.
