NAME - Directory Server perl script for importing a LDIF file

SYNOPSIS  -n  backend [-Z serverID] [-D rootdn] { -w password | -w - | -j filename } [-P
       protocol] {-s includeSuffix}* [{-x excludeSuffix}*] [-O]  [-c  chunksize]  [-v]  [-h]  [-g
       [string]] [-G namespace_id] {-i filename}*


       Imports  LDIF  file(s) into the server. Either the option '-n' or '-s' must be used.  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 value.

       -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
              Specifies the suffixes to be included or specifies the subtrees to be included.

       -x excludeSuffix
              Specifies the suffixes to be excluded or specifies the subtrees to be excluded.

       -i filename
              Name for the LDIF file to import.

       -g [string]
              Generates a unique ID. Type none for no unique ID to be generated and deterministic
              for the generated unique ID to be name-based. By default, a time-based unique ID is
              generated.  When using the deterministic generation to have a name-based unique ID,
              it is also possible to specify the namespace for the server to use, as follows:

              -g deterministic namespaceId

              namespaceId  is a string of characters in the format 00-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx-

       -G namespace_id
              Generates a namespace ID as a name-based unique ID. This is the same as  specifying
              the -g deterministic option.

       -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.

              Requests that only the core database is created without attribute indexes.

       -c Chunk size
              The number of entries to process before starting a fresh pass  during  the  import.
              By default this is handled internally by the server.

              Display usage

EXAMPLE -Z instance1 -n userRoot -i /LDAP/ldif/data.ldif  -s  "dc=example,dc=com"  -i  /LDAP/ldif/data.ldif -D 'cn=directory manager' -w
       password  -P STARTTLS

              Note: security must be enabled to  use  protocol  STARTTLS.   If  STARTTLS  is  not
              available it will default to next strongest/available protocol automatically.


       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.
