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
eg to read the configuration from /etc/cluster/cluster.conf, use the
OPENAIS_DEFAULT_CONFIG_IFACE=xmlconfig:cmanpreconfig confdb2ldif dc=mycompany,dc=com
or to do it from CCS
OPENAIS_DEFAULT_CONFIG_IFACE=ccsconfig:cmanpreconfig confdb2ldif dc=mycompany,dc=com
The LDIF file is written to stdout and so can be saved or piped
straight into ldapmodify if required.
It’s important that the 99cluster.ldif schema file has been loaded into
the LDAP server before adding the contents of this generated LDIF file.
confdb2ldif dc=mycorp,dc=com | ldapmodify -x -a -D"cn=Directory Manager" -c -v -W
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.
