Re: import-export

Use the "db2ldif" command in the "../slapd-<host>/" directory which will
dump EVERYTHING including "machine data". Or use V4/V5 Netscape Console
(V3 Admin Server) to do an EXPORT of the USER data only, which is
probably what you really want.

Send export.ldif to other server and from other server Netscape
Console/Admin Server, do an IMPORT.

You CAN use LDAPSEARCH if you REALLY WANT to, but it isn't necessary.
For OpenLDAP, which this mailing list is really for, you could use
