Re: Deadlock (ITS#77)
This time I managed to get some more info...
We were running slapd with errorlevel 4. Now every time I attempt a
call to the server, it logs:
ldap_pvt_thread_create failed (1)
If I attempt a "killall slapd", slapd logs:
slapd shutting down - waiting for 10 threads to terminate
and just waits... only way to kill it is with "kill -9"
I have gdb attached to slapd, but in my ignorance, I have no clue as to
what to do next!
