       db2ldif - Directory Server script for exporting the database


       db2ldif [-Z serverID] {-n backend_instance}* | {-s includeSuffix}* [{-x
       excludeSuffix}*] [-a outputFile] [-m] [-M] [-r]  [-u]  [-U]  [-C]  [-N]
       [-E] [-1] [-q] [-h]


       Exports the contents of the database to a LDIF file. This script can be
       executed while the server is still running, except when  using  the  -r


       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.

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

       -s includeSuffix
              Specifies suffixes to be included in the LDIF file.

       -x excludeSuffix
              Specifies suffixes to be excluded from the LDIF file.

       -a Output File
              The name for the LDIF file.

              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.

              Quiet mode.  Suppresses output of the script.

              Display the usage.


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

       db2ldif -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.
