Synchronized Backup and Export

All offline and online backup methods can be invoked in the CLI by using dsadm or dsconf. The default behavior for these commands is to operate in synchronous mode. The commands do not return a completion code until the task is complete.

You can use the dsconf import, dsconf export, dsconf backup, and dsconf restorecommands in an asynchronous mode by setting the -a flag.
