At the moment, you need to use slapcat/slapadd.

slapindex will be updated to support new schema codes or replaced
with some sort of slapreindex tool.

>Overall, I am very impressed so far.  The only other draw back has been performance.  A simple search against the 1.2.11 version returns (across the network) in less than a second (using an identical database with identical indexes).  The newer version returned the same results in approximately 7 seconds under identical conditions.  Once I tweaked the slapd daemon using the 'cachesize' and 'dbcachesize' options, the response time after the first query was reduced to 3 second.

Note that 2.x does yet support substrings indexes.  So, searches
with substring matching take longer.

>The main differences (which I am aware of) between the two servers are the version and that the version 2 slapd has fewer ACL's (I deleted a few to see if it would improve performance, which it didn't appear to make any difference).  If there is anything I can do to help troubleshoot this definitively, please let me know.
