       /usr/sbin/slapcat  [-v]  [-c]  [-d  level] [-b suffix] [-n
       dbnum] [-f slapd.conf] [-l ldif-file]


       Slapcat is used to generate an LDAP Directory  Interchange
       Format (LDIF) output based upon the contents of a slapd(8)
       database.  It opens the given database determined  by  the
       database  number  or  suffix  and writes the corresponding
       LDIF to standard output or the specified file.

       The LDIF generated by this tool is suitable for  use  with
       slapadd(8).   As  the  entries  are in database order, not
       superior first order, they  cannot  be  loaded  with  lda­
       padd(8) without being reordered.


       -v     enable verbose mode.

       -c     enable continue (ignore errors) mode.

       -d level
              enable  debugging messages as defined by the speci­
              fied level.

       -b suffix
              Use  the  specified  suffix  to   determine   which
              database  to generate output for.  The -b cannot be
              used in conjunction with the -n option.

       -n dbnum
              Generate output for the dbnum-th database listed in
              the  configuration  file.  The -n cannot be used in
              conjunction with the -b option.

       -f slapd.conf
              specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.

       -l ldif-file
              Write LDIF to specified file  instead  of  standard


       Your  slapd(8)  should  not  be  running (at least, not in
       read-write mode) when you do this to ensure consistency of
       the database.


       To make a text backup of your SLAPD database and put it in
       a file called ldif, give the command:

OpenLDAP 2.1.22             06-26-2003                SLAPCAT(8C)

An undefined database error occurred. SELECT distinct pages.pagepath,pages.pageid FROM pages, page2command WHERE pages.pageid = page2command.pageid AND commandid =
