I need to update my eDirectory schema for the SSPR application and, being a bit paranoid, I want to do a schema backup first, just in case something goes wrong and I need to recover. The schema LDIF is provided by NetIQ and should work but I still feel I should be able to recover if something goes wrong (memories of a schema corruption in the past haunt me). I tested "ndsbackup cvf ndsbackupfile Schema", modified the schema, then "tndsbackup xvf ndsbackupfile Schema" to restore the schema, but that did not seem to do what I expected and so is not suitable. What is the best way of doing a schema backup that can be restored in a disaster situation ? Should I use ICE to export the schema and then to import it?
Any help welcome.
