(ITS#5129) slapindex -q corrupts database if the DB_CONFIG file has changed
Full_Name: Quanah Gibson-Mount
Submission from: (NULL) (126.96.36.199)
After getting repeat DB corruptions, I finally tracked down the issue to this:
If DB_CONFIG has changed since the last time slapd was started, and slapindex -q
is run, the database ends up corrupt.
For example, I did the following with a perfectly happy slapd:
Killing slapd with pid 9857 done.
/opt/zimbra/openldap/sbin/slapindex -b '' -q -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf
bdb_db_open: DB_CONFIG for suffix has changed.
Performing database recovery to activate new settings.
bdb(): DB_RECOVER and DB_RECOVER_FATAL require DB_TXN_INIT in DB_ENV->open
bdb(): PANIC: Invalid argument
bdb_db_open: Database cannot be recovered, err -30978. Restore from backup!
backend_startup_one: bi_db_open failed! (-30978)
One of the things this does, is break syncreplication, as it apparently clears
out the glue entry. :/
