Hi,

Thanks, yum provides didnt return anything......I must of made a typo...
No, yum is correct.
These files are not provided by yum (i.e. in the package)
they are instead created when you set up your instances, by ipa eventually calling setup-ds.pl the reason ipa moved them from /usr to /var is that they felt it was not proper to dynamically create files under /usr since many deployments want /usr to be mounted read-only.

This script doesn't seem to be available/present (I did a find on /usr and a 
yum provides) can it be made available/official?
ipa has moved it to under /var/lib/dirsrv

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!

Deon

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.
