Do the slapadd tool keep the operational attributes values ?
It does not. See the slapadd man page.
Wrong. slapadd stores operational attribute values, also generating any
that are missing.
If we try and copy the database, shall we see instantly if there is a
problem, or can it occur at any time ?
slapadd has very little error checking versus adding through slapd. The
restrictions are detailed in the slapadd man page. If you feed slapadd
invalid data, but not so grossly invalid that slapadd errors out, it is
quite possible that lingering effects (missing parents, schema
violations, etc.) will "occur at any time" in the future. You basically
want your data to be clean enough for ldapadd, whether you use slapadd
By the way, if you're going to be migrating anyway, you really don't
want to migrate from 2.2 to 2.2. Try the latest version of 2.3 available
