Backing up edirectory on new Linux server

Just migrated a server from Netware to OES2 Linux. We used to do a dsrepair -rc to backup edirectory and create the DIB. I would like to do this on the new linux server. I am experimenting with ndsbackup and am trying the following command but cannot figure out syntax for username. The context for my admin user is admin.abc123. What is the correct format?

ndsbackup cvf ndsbackupfile "Full eDirectory Backup"
NDS Error : There is no such entry in the directory.

That worked great, thanks. I was just missing the treename.
