Hi Emmanuel,

Is the apacheds-tools.jar capable of doing backup/restores? A search on
the archives seem to indicate that it is broken and one should use
OpenLdap tools to perform backup/restore via the command line

Trying the command

java -jar apacheds-tools.jar dump -i /path/to/apacheds -p system

Yielded java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:

On a subject that relates to backups, is replication not working in
ApacheDS 1.5.7?
