RE: Berkeley DB - db_recover utility
I agree, my message was premature. After looking at the Berkeley DB
documentation it looks like the recovery functionality is provided for
transactional Berkeley DB which OpenLDAP does not support.
I am seriously looking into adding transactional support to OpenLDAP to
improve data base reliability. If I come up with anything of general use I
will post a patch to the group.

I have been looking at this too. As far as I could see at that time it would
require that the Berkeley DB environment has been created with the
DB_LOGGING and the DB_TXN (logging and transaction subsystems turned on)
set. This way log files will be created during hte lifetime of the database
which the db_recover tool can use to reconstruct the database after critical
database failures. There is a lot to read about it on the www.sleepycat.com
