SLAPADD(8C)							   SLAPADD(8C)

       slapadd - Add entries to a SLAPD database

       /usr/sbin/slapadd  [-v] [-c] [-u] [-d level] [-b suffix] [-n dbnum] [-f
       slapd.conf] [-l ldif-file]

       Slapadd is used to add entries specified in LDAP Directory  Interchange
       Format  (LDIF)  to  a  slapd(8)	database.  It opens the given database
       determined by the database number or suffix  and	 adds  entries	corre‐
       sponding	 to the provided LDIF to the database.	The LDIF input is read
       from standard input or the specified file.

       As slapadd is designed to accept LDIF in database order, as produced by
       slapcat(8),  it	does  not  verify  that	 superior entries exist before
       adding an entry, does not perform all user and  system  schema  checks,
       and  does  not maintain operational attributes (such as createTimeStamp
       and modifiersName).

       -v     enable verbose mode.

       -c     enable continue (ignore errors) mode.

       -u     enable dry-run (don't write to backend) mode.

       -d level
	      enable debugging messages as defined by the specified level.

       -b suffix
	      Use the specified suffix to  determine  which  database  to  add
	      entries  to.   The  -b cannot be used in conjunction with the -n

       -n dbnum
	      Add entries to the dbnum-th database listed in the configuration
	      file.  The -n cannot be used in conjunction with the -b option.

       -f slapd.conf
	      specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.

       -l ldif-file
	      Read LDIF from the specified file instead of standard input.

       Your  slapd(8) should not be running when you do this to ensure consis‐
       tency of the database.

       slapadd may not provide naming or schema checks.	 It  is	 advisable  to
       use ldapadd(1) when adding new entries into an existing directory.

       To  import a entries specified in file ldif into your slapd(8) database
       give the command:

	    /usr/sbin/slapadd -l ldif

       ldap(3), ldif(5), slapcat(8), ldapadd(1), slapd(8)
