Follow-up: is it expected that the misc db_* utilities can be used

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.
