Re: Open LDAP installation on Solaris 2.6 (SPARC)

I've gotten 1.1.4 and 1.2 to work thus far with either the GDBM or DB2

GDBM performance wasn't all it ought to be so we're running 1.2/DB2 off an
Ultra 1/Solaris 2.6:105181-13 kernel patch.

I had problems with:

Running ldif2ldbm to build slapd database...
     id2entry file: Bad file number

as you mention below, when using ldif2ldbm.  truss wasn't terribly
enlightening.  You'd see something like "fstat (-1, 0x[random hex])" which
would return EBADF and the whole thing would die.  Weird.  After much
prodding around the code, it turned out the ldif2ldbm process couldn't
read slapd.conf.  When I set the permissions on that file to 0644,
everything fell right into place.

Strangely enough, this only happened when DB2 was the backend.  I never
looked for a deeper cause after the permissions change fixed it...sorry.

Hope this helps!
