Re: Is putting slapd into read-only mode sufficient for backups?

Follow-up: is it expected that the misc db_* utilities can be used
safely at this point?
The only officially supported backup method with OpenLDAP is slapcat.
Everything else, you do at your own risk. Personally, I think that article
is wrong, as I believe you would at a minimum require id2entry, dn2id, and
all of the current BDB log files. I also would not trust any FAQ entry
that references LDBM, as that indicates that it is of significant age.
