I would like to backup CA Directory DSA data in LDIF file format without shutting the DSA down. Can I do that?
CA Directory on all platform
Yes, you can do the following
1. Run online DSA backup.
dxserver onlinebackup <dsa name>
The zdb backup file will be generated under dxserver/data directory
2. Run dxdumpdb with -z option
dxdumpdb -f <dsa name>.ldif -z <dsa name>
<dsa name>.ldif will be generated
There is a known issue with dxdumpdb utility on Windows platform for DSA with dxgrid-db-size more than 4GB. Please refer the following KB article.
