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

If you checkpoint, and you backup all the database files (including
transaction log files) in the correct order, you should not need to
db_recover (as database recovery can occur at a later time, if it could
not, then your backup is totally broken anyway).
db_recover does much more than db_checkpoint. If you want to trust
db_checkpoint, fine. I don't. In any case, all of this will soon be moot
with back-mdb, thank god.
