Hi Alex,

thx for building the trunk - I was able to download, install, run as
service. Also tested the apacheds-tools and they worked for dump.


But still two questions:

- what file format does the import command require? ldif? or can I use
the file written thru dump command to use with import command?

I think it should be an LDIF like the one generated through the dump command.

- now that I have the built snapshot release, can I go and copy the two
files apacheds-tools.jar and
apacheds-schema-registries-1.5.1-SNAPSHOT.jar over my installed
apacheds-1.5.0 version and use this instead? will that work?

It should not due to changes in the configuration files and the manifest of the tools jar.

You might though be able to just install ads 1.5.1-SNAPSHOT then move the partition
over from 1.5.0 to the 1.5.1-SNAPSHOT into the respective position.  See if this works.
I think that's your best shot.

Or do I
need to install this snapshot version on my windows 2003 server to make
the apacheds-tools work properly?

Yes install the SNAPSHOT version.  Also you might be able to use the apacheds-tools
in the 1.5.1-SNAPSHOT to dump what is inside 1.5.0 partitions.  Give that a try too.
