NAME

       ldif2ldap - Directory Server script for adding entries

SYNOPSIS

       ldif2ldap  [-Z  serverID] [-D <rootdn>] -w <password> -f <ldifFile> [-P
       protocol] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       Performs an import operation over LDAP to the Directory Server. To  run
       this script, the server must be running.

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.

       -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.

       -f LDIF file
              The LDIF file with the entries to add.

       -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.

       -h
              Display the usage.

EXAMPLE

       ldif2ldap  -Z  instance3  -D  'cn=directory  manager'  -w  password  -f
       /LDAP/ldif/entries.ldif -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.

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.
