confdb2ldif - Create an LDIF file from a cluster configuration
confdb2ldap <basedn> [<config object base>]
confdb2ldif reads the cluster configuration from the openais object database
and generates an LDIF file suitable for importing into an LDAP database. The LDIF
file is written to standard output.
This is the base DN of the LDAP server into which the configuration will be imported.
confdb2ldif will create a "cn=cluster" object below this to contain the cluster configuration.
The base DN is usually derived from the host's domain name. So if the host is ldapsrv.mycorp.com
then the base DN could be dc=mycorp,dc=com.
[<config object base>]
Configuration object in the objdb to start from. This defaults to "cluster" and
there should rarely be any need to change it.
confdb2ldif uses the openais libconfdb to read the configuration. The default way to
do this is run against a running aisexec to read the live configuration.
It is possible to generate an LDIF file from a non-running system by using the standalone feature of openais's libconfdb.
eg to read the configuration from /etc/cluster/cluster.conf, use the following command:
confdb2ldif parses the cluster configuration without checking it against the loaded
schema. So if there are attributes in the config file that are not known to the schema,
parts of the load will fail. It is important to check the results of feeding the
output into ldapmodify. In particular aisexec logging operations will not convert
into LDIF because they rely on duplicate keys.
