i installed iredmail http://www.iredmail.org/ with the ldap backend and entered some userdata afterwards i tried to add some data via phpldapadmin, which does not worked (tired to export a user, add more "shadow emails" and reimport it; got an duplicate entry error; i just mention it for information, it is not the main problem here).

my main problem: i want to backup the ldap database, so i tried to use the backupscipts shiped with iredmail but not the whole data gets backed up. as far as i understand only the two root nodes of the ldap database gets dumped. i have seen that slapcat is used for the backup, on the command line slapcat also returns not enough data.

phpldapadmin and the command 'ldapsearch -LLL -Wx -D "cn=Manager,dc=mail,dc=domain,dc=com"' return the correct data (i can't verify that every field needed is dumped, but all email user get dumped)

dumped data:

dn: dc=mydomain,dc=com
objectClass: top
objectClass: dcObject
objectClass: organizcomion
o: mydomain.com
dc: mydomain
structuralObjectClass: organizcomion
entryUUID: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
