If you’re getting this error and the man page for slapconfig is useless because there’s not enough detail, make sure you are also specifying the name of the disk image that the data will be saved to in your path.

sudo slapconfig -backupdb /Users/localadmin/Documents/odbackup42117/untitled.sparseimage
