Re: Problem with openldap backup script

Thanks Quanah,

I know about slapcat and I'm using it with great success.

However, I was wondering about this backup script, since it's part of the default installation (using these RPMs) and automatically scheduled with cron. It seems to be a nice and sophisticated script (by Buchan) which looks trustworthy, although it appears to be relatively old.

Per your advice, I think I'll remove it and schedule (cron) slapcat for nightly/weekly backups instead, unless someone else provides other feedback.

Thanks again,

(either manually or by cron), it produces no results whatsoever:

This script is not part of the openldap package, and so it is unlikely many people will have any idea what it does or is trying to do. I certainly don't. I suggest you use slapcat.
