Hi Rich and all,

Thank you a lot for pointing out the place of the scripts. 


The scripts are found at the place specified and trued, they are working great 
in general, but there are still some places needs help:


1, there are no manual or help regarding the command options. Not sure where 
the normal usage could be looked up.

[root@ipamaster scripts-PEGACLOUDS-COM]# man db2ldif
No manual entry for db2ldif

[root@ipamaster scripts-PEGACLOUDS-COM]# ./db2ldif --help
Usage: db2ldif {-n backend_instance}* | {-s includesuffix}*
               [{-x excludesuffix}*] [-a outputfile]
               [-N] [-r] [-C] [-u] [-U] [-m] [-M] [-1]
Note: either "-n backend_instance" or "-s includesuffix" is required.
[root@ipamaster scripts-PEGACLOUDS-COM]# 


2, what is the 'official' way increase file descriptors for IPA & 389 Directory 
server??

[root@ipamaster scripts-PEGACLOUDS-COM]# ./db2ldif -s 'dc=pegaclouds,dc=com'
Exported ldif file: 
/var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-PEGACLOUDS-COM/ldif/PEGACLOUDS-COM-pegaclouds-2012_04_30_164542.ldif
[30/Apr/2012:16:45:42 -0700] - /etc/dirsrv/slapd-PEGACLOUDS-COM/dse.ldif: 
nsslapd-maxdescriptors: nsslapd-maxdescriptors: invalid value "8192", maximum 
file descriptors must range from 1 to 1024 (the current process limit).  Server 
will use a setting of 1024.
[30/Apr/2012:16:45:42 -0700] - Config Warning: - nsslapd-maxdescriptors: 
invalid value "8192", maximum file descriptors must range from 1 to 1024 (the 
current process limit).  Server will use a setting of 1024.
...


3, the ldif2db command will abort when IPA(Directory Server) is running. 


 I have to stop IPA first, then run ldif2db, and fireup IPA at the end. It may 
not be a bad thing to avoid potential data base corruption. But please confirm 
whether this is a feature or a bug.


[root@ipamaster scripts-PEGACLOUDS-COM]# ./ldif2db -s 'dc=pegaclouds,dc=com' -i 
/var/lib/dirsrv/slapd-PEGACLOUDS-COM/ldif/PEGACLOUDS-COM-pegaclouds-2012_04_30_163506.ldif
 
importing data ...
...
[30/Apr/2012:16:50:00 -0700] - Backend Instance: userRoot
[30/Apr/2012:16:50:00 -0700] - Unable to import the database because it is 
being used by another slapd process.
[30/Apr/2012:16:50:00 -0700] - Shutting down due to possible conflicts with 
other slapd processes


Thanks.

--David

                is that the best thing to do is to back up the DS
                instances using db2ldif and then spin up a new
                server/replica instance and

look in /var/lib/dirsrv/scripts-YOURDOMAIN-YOURTLD


The IPA servers only install 389-ds-base and 389-ds-base-libs RPMs. and the two 
commands doesn't show up anywhere.
