       Dump and decode Directory Server replication change log


       A summary of options is included below.

       -c     Dump and interpret CSN only. This option can be used with or without -i option.

       -D bind-dn
              Directory  server's  bind  DN.  Default  to "cn=Directory Manager" if the option is

       -h host
              Directory server's host. Default to the server where the script is running.

       -i changelog‐ldif‐file‐with‐base64encoding
              If you already have a ldif-like  changelog,  but  the  changes  in  that  file  are
              encoded, you may use this option to decode that ldif-like changelog.

       -o output‐file
              Path name for the final result. Default to STDOUT if omitted.

       -p port
              Directory server's port. Default to 389.

       -P bind‐cert
              Pathname of binding certificate DB

       -r replica‐roots
              Specify  replica  roots  whose changelog you want to dump. The replica roots may be
              separated by comma. All the replica roots would be dumped if the option is omitted.

       -v     Print the version of this script.

       -w bind‐password
              Password for the bind DN


       If you are not using -i option, the script should be run when the server is  running,  and
       from where the server's changelog directory is accessible.
