Re: unable to open Berkeley db /etc/sasldb: No such file or directory

But since last 2 months till today morning ldap was working fine. I am
not able to find the problem which could have caused this issue?

and what is the solution for this problem? Will I have to uninstall
and install new ldap with backend other than LDBM.

In my context,  i am using ldap replication feature where other ldaps
has backend as LDBM. If i change backend for new ldap, will it affect
the replication feature?

Can u please tell me the command to get the version of ldap?
