RE: ::beat head here:: need help sorting out slapadd


Thank you. Your post helped a lot. Including finding a typos in the import file that did not match my slapd.conf declarations.

Being an LDAP newbie, at the CLI at least (I have used Netscape Directory in the past via the GUI), I do have a question for the list. 

There seems to be a duplication of work by the programs in sbin and bin.

For instance... what is the difference between ldapadd and slapadd? It seems there are other programs with similar function.

Thanks again.

Make sure that your database directory
(/usr/local/openldap/var/openldap-ldbm) exists and is writeable by the
user that you run slapadd as. Also make sure you run slapadd as the
same user that will be used to run slapd. (Better still, start slapd
anyway and use ldapmodify to add the data instead of slapadd)
