Copying a Provider database to the Replica
If an ldap replica is not in sync with the provider, it is possible to manually load all of the data from the provider into the replica. There are two methods of doing this. Either using slapcat/slapadd, or using mdb_copy.
Using mdb_copy to reset the replica db
Using slapcat/slapadd to reload the replica db
On the ZCS LDAP Master
Export an ldif of the master ldap database.
# su - zimbra $ ~/libexec/zmslapcat /tmp
On the ZCS LDAP replica
Copy the file ldap.bak from the master to the replica (this example assumes that the hostname of the master is master.domain.com).
# su - zimbra $ scp firstname.lastname@example.org:/tmp/ldap.bak /tmp/ldap-master.ldif
Stop the ldap service.
$ ldap stop
As zimbra, move aside the existing ldap data (for this example, the data directory is renamed with the current date (2007-12-07) and state (out-of-sync) of the data), and create a new empty data directory.
$ cd /opt/zimbra/data/ldap $ mv mdb mdb.2007-12-07-out-of-sync $ mkdir -p /opt/zimbra/data/ldap/mdb/db $ cd $ ./libexec/zmslapadd /tmp/ldap-master.ldif
Then start the ldap service and run a test query.
$ ldap start $ zmprov -l getAllServers
