I've made an interesting discovery this afternoon. I installed the Red Hat
2.0.23 RPM back on the test server, but on a hunch, I tried to load the
information back with slapadd rather than my backup of the .gdbm database
Lo and behold, using gdbm I STILL have this problem (although the entries
that it duplicates are different than the ones with bdb) ! I've never had
to import data in with slapadd before, so, I probably just never noticed
this. I tried 2.0.25 with gdbm just for kicks; same result.
So, it looks like it's not the backend, but OpenLDAP itself, that is causing
these import problems. It's probably a separate problem from my original
I guess should consider following the CVS tree in order to get a working set
of tools. A few past messages on the mailing list suggest that there are
some problematic differences in the API, though. Should I be able to
upgrade to 2.1.X if the rest of my LDAP tools were compiled with 2.0.X ?
Is it possible that it's only slapadd that has this problem? Furthermore,
if I want to attempt to work around this problem by recreating all of my
index files after a slapadd, which files do I need to keep intact? I note
that slapindex doesn't seem to alter index files if they already exist.
