Re: Anyone on this list patient with stupid questions?

Pete, thanks for the commentary.

Either that or it is exciting!

And, that underlying thought reflects how the documentation and manuals are 

Those three commands from the command line, which you provided, worked and
confirmed that slapd is running.

> Assuming you have a correctly configured slapd

That is a very big assumption!What is curious is that I can have a slapd.conf so
that slapd runs, but that doesn't mean it is properly configured. It would be
nice to have a script that checked the validity of the configuration.

Thanks for sharing your rebuild script. I wondered why it was necessary to
destroy and rebuild. I guess it is what works.

I wonder from what directory, i.e., folder in the computer's file system, this
script is run?

If I ran the command 'rm -f /var/lib/ldap/*' it would delete all of my *.ldif
files and I would have nothing from which to rebuild. Where do you store your
*.ldif, or in your case, *.ldf files?

More importantly, you speak of a structure file and your rebuild script builds
one separate from the other directories, i.e., address listings accessed with
LDAP. I thought such hierarchical structure came at the beginning of the
corresponding *.ldif file.

DIT? Come again?

Thanks for telling me you use a bogus domain, that confirms what Brenda told me.
