NAME
       ldif2ldap - Directory Server script for adding entries

SYNOPSIS
       ldif2ldap [-Z serverID] [-D <rootdn>] -w <password> -f <ldifFile> [-P
       protocol] [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       Performs an import operation over LDAP to the Directory Server. To run
       this script, the server must be running.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options is included below:

       -Z Server Identifier
              The server ID of the Directory Server instance.  If there is
              only one instance on the system, this option can be skipped.

       -D Root DN
              The Directory Manager DN, or root DN.  If not specified, the
              script will search the server instance configuration for the
              value.

       -w password
              The rootdn password.

       -f LDIF file
              The LDIF file with the entries to add.

       -P Protocol
              The connection protocol to connect to the Directory Server.
              Protocols are STARTTLS, LDAPS, LDAPI, and LDAP.  If this option
              is skipped, the most secure protocol that is available is used.
              For LDAPI, AUTOBIND is also available for the root user.

       -h
              Display the usage.

EXAMPLE
       ldif2ldap -Z instance3 -D 'cn=directory manager' -w password -f
       /LDAP/ldif/entries.ldif -P STARTTLS

       Note: security must be enabled to use protocol STARTTLS.  If STARTTLS
       is not available it will default to next strongest/available protocol
       automatically.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Exit status is zero if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero
       exit status and a diagnostic message being written to standard error.
