(ITS#5491) slapd crashes with ldappasswd

Full_Name: Deepak Cheema

Submission from: (NULL) (

Just built, installed openldap 2.4.8 and slapd starts up fine using the

slapd -f slapd.conf -u root

as root user on default port 389

[root@dl2k245 libexec]# ps -ef|grep slapd
root     15065     1  0 15:31 ?        00:00:00 ./slapd -f
dap/etc/openldap/slapd.conf -u root

The process stays up as long as I don't type the ldappasswd command to get the
encrypted password a new user...

once I type in ldappasswd... this is what happens..

[root@dl2k245 bin]# ldappasswd
SASL/DIGEST-MD5 authentication started
Please enter your password:
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Can't contact LDAP server
        additional info: SASL(0): successful result: security flags do not
[root@dl2k245 bin]# ps -ef|grep lapd
root     15077 14561  0 15:32 pts/3    00:00:00 grep lapd

and the slapd process is no longer there...

Any ideas why it might be happening or how to debug this?
I tried dbg but it did not tell me much.. maybe I did not use it correctly...

Any help is appreciated !
