[389-users] Re: LDIF imports

The path to the LDIF file is not hardcoded, it is usually a file and/or directory permission and/or SELinux label problem to allow the uid running the LDAP service to read that file.
It should be the same as in the default LDIF directory provided as an example.
The errors log file should have a more precise indication.
dsctl some-instance ldif2db userroot some-path/some-file.ldif

Is there something hard-coded into 389 v1.4 such that it can only import data from /var/lib/dirsrv/<instance>/ldif  ?


I've been trying to initialize a new setup with an export we'd been using for 389 v1.3  but every time it failed with a "file not found" error until the ldif was copied to /var/lib/….etc.
