Description

Creating a backup of an LDAP directory is both useful and simple. So simple that it can be setup for periodic backups with rsnapshot in just a few commands.

  • 1. Create backup script to dump LDAP directory
    sudo vi /usr/local/bin/backup_ldap.sh
    

#!/bin/bash
#Script to dump LDAP directory
slapcat -l backup.ldif

  • 2. Make the script executable
    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/backup_ldap.sh
    
  • 3. Add script to rsnapshot to the bottom of configuration, remember to keep tab-delimitation
    sudo vi /etc/rsnapshot.conf
    

...
backup_script /usr/local/bin/backup_ldap.sh localhost/ldapdump/
...
