Re: backup (was: slapcat cannot open database - why?)

You might also tell your "invisible" slave to produce a replog. I save
the relog that my "invisible" slave produces, split into hour-long chunks,
for a week, so I can effectively reproduce the database as it was at any point
for the week.

It takes the server off-line for a few seconds, copies id2entry,

so the online real downtime on this invisible replica is for
copying (about 2 seconds) and reloading slapd.
