eDir Windows...offline backup best practice


We need to update 1000's of users with a modrdn script.

I'd like to take a offline backup of the directory (in addition to the
hot backups we have)

Is there a best practices for doing this? What dirs to copy? etc?

Thanks!

Geoff

On *nix I'd just say to use the ndsrc.pl script, but on windows..... not
sure. Backup the 'DIBFiles' directory of course and that's probably all
you really need since the worry is about stuff in the DIB.

With regard to your modrdn... just do it in small-ish batches. Try 100
for example and wait for obituaries to purge, then another batch. If
you get to big it'll be a lot of work to fix. Along those lines, be
sure you're on the latest code.

Good luck.

Use dsbk to make a full backup.
