Let me try asking a slightly different question.
This page says:
How do I backup my directory?
You can backup your BDB, HDB, or LDBM-based directory by making
a copy of the id2entry index file while slapd is NOT running.
Question: is slapd, put into read-only mode via the config database,
close enough to 'NOT running' to satisfy the condition?
Follow-up: is it expected that the misc db_* utilities can be used
safely at this point?
