A good day to you all. i am currently trying out openldap 2.0.23, which came with the Red Hat 7.3 installation. i ran into problems while trying to create the initial directory -- i.e. when running ldapadd, i keep getting "could not open dn2id.gdbm", "could not open id2entry.gdbm" errors in syslog.
i did manage to get around this problem by:
1. chmod 777 /path/to/ldap/files
2. ldapadd ....
3. chmod 750 -R /path/to/ldap/files
After step 3, i can now add entries either by using an ldap client of thru ldapadd. Is this the normal process, or am i doing something wrong?
