You must stop the Directory Server, not the HTTP Admin server(dirsrv-admin)

The directory is not stopped, so the bak2db is aborted. To stop the
directory server use:

# stop-dirsrv


# service dirsrv stop

No, dirsrv-admin is the HTTP administration server. The netscaperoot
data is stored in the directory server instance.

That is probably best, but the restore should be a quick process.

Your restore process looks okay, you just didn't stop the DS before
attempting it.
