First off, I have opened a ticket to make it clear in the FreeIPA docs what you 
should do:
https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa-guide/ticket/25

Okay, until I get that done, here is the info on what to do for backing up and 
restoring the DS in general:
http://docs.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Directory_Server/8.2/html/Administration_Guide/Populating_Directory_Databases-Backing_Up_and_Restoring_Data.html

There are a couple of different options and scripts you can use, aside from 
just importing and exporting data.

Hope that helps!

Subject: [Freeipa-users] backing up and restoring the backend

Hi,

Backing up

I cant find anything in the documentation discussing backing up and recovering 
IPA/ldap?....in the past I seem to recall the FDS/389 suggested exporting the 
data which was then backed up.....I think there was a gui to do that....

So even if its a case of now its easy just backup /var/lib/dirsrv and nothing 
more is needed, it should say so IMHO.

Restoring

Is there a restore process?  so with FDS/389 you would import the exported file.

regards
