Hi I am trying simple backup restore, ldif export import with OpenDS 2.2 and it doesn't seem to actually work. I am on a Mac java version "1.6.0_26" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03-384-10M3425) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02-384, mixed mode) Steps to produce, (post install of OpenDS) 1) Create a LDAP entry using the ControlPanel/Manage Entries (ie dc=foo,dc=com) 2) Create a user under this entry (ie uid=me,dc=foo,dc=com) 3) Create a back The Backup from the double clickable app in the bin of the OpenDS does create a file 4) delete the user uid=me,dc=foo,dc=com 5) shutdown the server 6) Perform a restore from the GUI 7) Start the server (and search for uid=me,dc=foo,dc=com) Expected result uid=me,dc=foo,dc=com would have been restored I also tried the same thing with export ldif import ldif, although I kept the server running Hopefully no one is actually using this as a production LDAP server? If so lets hope no floods, hurricanes exc hit em :(
