Re: '/etc/init.d/ldap start' vs. 'slapd'

There are a couple of things you can check. Red Hat stores some extra
command line options in /etc/sysconfig/openldap. They may be causing
problems. Also, you will probably want to read the /etc/init.d/ldap
script and understand what it is doing. It also has some command line
options set in there, and they too may be causing problems.

As for logging, creating a syslog facility for local4 (/etc/syslog.conf,
i think) will direct syslog to print the LDAP error messages somewhere.
