Re: Querying Directory entries
THe first operation of ldif2ldbm is to delete the existing databases. Ldif2ldbm is only for creation of a complete database not to add items. ladpadd should be used to add entries to an existing database.

> I'm having problems with using ldapsearch if I do multiple ldif2ldbms with different files. For exmaple, if I populate my tree using one ldif file and then do a number of successful ldapsearchs then that's fine. If I then create another ldif file and using ldif2ldbm to put that in the tree, my previous successful ldapsearches now fail with Object Not Found. So, I shut down my slapd, removed the contents of index directory, concatenated hte two files and then did a new ldif2ldbm and all my ldap searches worked fine again. I used ldapadd to manually enter new information and that was fine. Ideas? Is there a command
