Best practice of taking a backup of current LDAP and restore that into a new server
 
to get a backup of just the data - the simplest thing to do is to use db2ldif (documented well in the various versions). ┬*you can use the GUI to do an export which uses db2ldif under the covers. ┬*db2ldif has various capabilities to include and exclude portions of the tree. ┬*ldif2db is to import. ┬*also well documented. ┬*i do this all the time. ┬*it's really easy.

You can run this in many ways for example:

Ldapsearch -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -b ou=Users,l=uk,dc=fosiul,dc=lan

Ldapsearch -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -b ou=Groups,l=uk,dc=fosiul,dc=lan

This way you get 2 results in ldif format. But you can try something like this:

Ldapsearch -D "cn=Directory Manager" -W -b l=uk,dc=fosiul,dc=lan '(I(objectclass=person)(ou=Groups)(ou=Users)(objec tclass=posixgroup))'

I used "I" in ldapfilter because could not find pipe character on my phone please use pipe character known from bash instead. Sorry for trouble.

This command should give the same result as ones provided ealier, but in one query. I am asking for all ldap content and filter it aginst persons, posixgroups and users/groups containers.

What i ment is you can do this task in many ways :)
