I think so too. I don't like forking, thus I use "Type=notify" and
"ExecStart=slapd -d0 ..." in my slapd.service file.

> NotifyAccess=main has a chicken-and-egg problem, because systemd needs to know the main PID in order for us to send it the message containing the PID! :) I think the only reasonable way to leave forking enabled would be to also require a PIDFile= setting, which solves that problem. But I'd rather sidestep the entire thing, omit MAINPID= as well, and

Agreed. I'll fix servers/slapd/daemon.c later. Thank you.

My slapd.service file:

Description=OpenLDAP Server
After=syslog.target network-online.target

ExecStart=%LIBEXECDIR%/slapd -d 0 -h "ldapi:/// ldap:///";
