One critical point though :

when exporting the LDIF, there is *no* guarantee whatsoever that the
data will be ordered in a way that will allow you to re-import them in
one shoot. Typically, you may get some children entries before their
parents in the LDIF file.

This is an issue we are working on in Studio.

There are some workarounds :
- order the entries in the file (it's a tedious task if you have
thousands of entries)
- using Studio, you can import the entries as many time as you have
errors, not stopping on errors. It's also way longer, bt it works
- you can also write some script that order the entries before sending them.
