I am using ldapsearch daily to export all the LDAP content to a LDIF

more to be completed while affecting LDAP access

So, I would like to know if there is any way of making an 'incremental
backup' from the existing database (e.g. backup
only what has been added starting froma a specific date/tim).
I suggest using slapcat and a compression utility like gzip, and doing full
dumps nightly. LDIF compresses quite well...
