3. is there an even better way to backup openldap databases?

I suggest searching the archives, as it is quite possible to slapcat the DB without shutting down slapd in OL 2.2, depending on the backend you use.

FAQ at openldap.org



Can someone explain what " For BDB and HDB, slapcat(8) can generally be used while the server is running" means. Is it safe or not? I'm still at the same point in my understanding. :)
