Re: how to maintain OpenLDAP database ?

As noted by others, you can use slapcat or ldapsearch to perform nightly
backups. If using ldapsearch, be sure your ACLs allow a full dump,
including userPassword.

Also, be sure to put into place log monitoring for slapd (and possibly
slurpd if you are replicating) to watch for errors. We also like to do
routine and automated LDAP service checks via tools such as Big Brother.

How long have you been using OpenLDAP anyway?
