Tony (sucks index finger and holds it up in the air):
1: File permissions and ownership on database directory/files (obvious,
2: Index parameters and allowable attributes (does debug -d 256 output
3: Is it a production server by now? If not, run it in test mode at a
high debug level (-d -1) - boring and highly stressful, but often
3a: Run slapd under strace or gdbm (definitely not tried from my side);
How did "make test" work out, before you installed it? Are you
absolutely sure the BDB installation compiled and installed 100% as it
should have done?
Have you incorporated Cyrus SASL libs and/or Kerberos?
