NAME

       db2ldif - Directory Server script for exporting the database

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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
       option.

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.

       -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.

       -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.

       -q
              Quiet mode.  Suppresses output of the script.

       -h
              Display the usage.

EXAMPLE

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

       db2ldif -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.
