    This tool is for: eDirectory versions where dsbk and eMBox supported.

    If you have edirectory instances that are jumping from one node to another in case of a failure, this script detects which instance running on which host, then performs a backup of it with dsbk with proper hostname and timestamp tags. You can add a cron job to run "backupedirs" at 04:00 AM everyday, for example.

    If you're familiar with dsbk, you'll get the idea.
