Re: online backup with slapcat?

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. :)
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
I can tell you that we are running 2.2.13 and we use slapcat every night
to backup our master server while it is running. Haven't had a problem
yet in over six months of using this process.
