If the LDAP database is large when using the dir exportldif o=dbsuffix "" CLI command, the screen buffer might run out of space. This causes an issue where the data cannot be copied.
There are two ways to capture the full LDIF entries in this scenario:
- Increase the scroll back buffer on your terminal application (e.g., Putty for Windows machines).
- Use the SSH client on a Linux machine to pull the information back.
On Linux, run the following command:
$ ssh administrator@SYSTEM_NAME 'dir exportldif "DBSUFFIX" "" ' > LDIF.txt
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org 'dir exportldif "o=miratop" "" ' > file_name.txt
This command will copy the complete LDIF data to a file named file_name.txt on your Linux machine.
NOTE: You must allow SSH connections to your Mirapoint appliance. For more information on how to allow SSH connections and possibly any firewall rule changes, see the latest Mirapoint Product Documentation.
