       ldif2ldap - Directory Server script for adding entries


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


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


       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.

              Display the usage.


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

       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.
