Hello Howard,

thanks for answer, I presumed something like this!

I think, it would be a great thing to test the slapcat file (after
dumping it) instantly.

So as reported in
I tried to do this with a broken backup and the dry-run switch. But
slapadd did not report the error.
It will work only with a real import.
Are there other possibilities, or can be slapadd modified, that this
will report such error?

Thanks in advance
