Re: (ITS#6659) logfile directive not logging any log

Sorry to keep bugging, but I believe this *is* the most appropriate
mailing list.

Having to create a different user just so that I can log to a
different files doesn't seem like an optimal solution. Clearly, this
is a lack of necessary feature for slapd where user can not override
the location of the log file. Also, I've re-read the documentation
many times but it seems to suggest that I am supposed to be able to
forward the content of the log (sent to syslog) to a separate file.
Perhaps the documentation needs to be updated?
