       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 option.


       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   :
              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.


       db2ldif was written by the 389 Project.
