As long as you don't bump into any timeouts, size limits, or entries
or attributes hidden by access controls.

Otherwise, you could use slapcat, filter out the unwanted attributes
with a small perl script, and then add them with ldapadd:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
# This program filters out OpenLDAP-internal attributes from an LDIF file.
# Usage:
#   ldiffilter [<ldif-filename>...]
# Input comes from the filenames on the command line, or from standard input.
# Output goes to standard output.

use strict;

my @skip = qw(structuralObjectClass entryUUID entryCSN
	      creatorsName createTimestamp modifiersName modifyTimestamp);

my $skip_re = join("|", @skip);
my $prev = '';
while (<>) {
    if (/^ /) {
	$prev .= $_;
    } else {
	$prev = $_;

sub out {
    (my $tmp = $prev) =~ s/\r?\n //g;
    print $prev unless $tmp =~ /^(?:$skip_re)(?:\;\w+)*:/io;
