Ah, many thanks, that helped.
But this doesn't help me with my initial problem: I want to backup the
LDAP server. Is it safe to backup the gdbm files only? I personally
would prefer to backup a LDIF file, which can also be used on a
machine with a different hardware architecture. That's why I was
looking for slapcat. But on a production machine I cannot stop slapd
while running slapcat, because the server needs to be available all
So my new question is: how do you backup the data of your LDAP servers?
