SLAPCAT(8C)							   SLAPCAT(8C)

       slapcat - SLAPD database to LDIF utility

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

       Slapcat is used to generate an LDAP Directory Interchange Format (LDIF)
       output  based  upon  the contents of a slapd(8) database.  It opens the
       given database determined by the database number or suffix  and	writes
       the corresponding LDIF to standard output or the specified file.

       The  LDIF  generated  by this tool is suitable for use with slapadd(8).
       As the entries are in database order, not superior  first  order,  they
       cannot be loaded with ldapadd(8) without being reordered.

       -v     enable verbose mode.

       -c     enable continue (ignore errors) mode.

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

       -b suffix
	      Use the specified suffix to determine which database to generate
	      output for.  The -b cannot be used in conjunction	 with  the  -n

       -n dbnum
	      Generate output for the dbnum-th database listed in the configuā€
	      ration file.  The -n cannot be used in conjunction with  the  -b

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

       -l ldif-file
	      Write LDIF to specified file instead of standard output.

       Your  slapd(8) should not be running (at least, not in read-write mode)
       when you do this to ensure consistency of the database.

       To make a text backup of your SLAPD database  and  put  it  in  a  file
       called ldif, give the command:

	    /usr/sbin/slapcat -l ldif

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