8.4 Multiple Instances

ldif2dib can be used to bulkload entries from LDIF files to a particular instance of eDirectory (DIB) by specifying the location of its nds.db file with the -n option. If the location of the nds.db file is not specified with the -n option and if there is a single instance of eDirectory configured on the system, ldif2dib automatically detects the location of its database files. However, if there are multiple instances, ldif2dib displays a menu listing all configured instances and allows you to choose an instance for bulkload.

For more information on the multiple instances of eDirectory, see “Using ndsconfig to Configure Multiple Instances of eDirectory 8.8” in the NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 SP8 Installation Guide.
