e.g /opt/symas/bin/mdb_copy /openldap-data /backup/
syntax:- mdb_copy /<db-dir> /<backup destination>
You only need data.mdb file. We are having very big db size(about
500Gb) and we never face any problem with backup.
lock.mdb is not required.
You can simply copy back data.mdb to your db directory for restoration and
it will work like magic.

a) What version of OpenLDAP are you using? I can mdb_copy a live DB just
b) You only need a backup of data.mdb. That's why lock.mdb isn't copied.
