RE: Help: slapcat limits on 2 gb exact ldif file


The server is not running. Using 2.0.27 release here, running 5.8 SunOS. Now
looking into large file support and utilization of fputs() in slapcat.

I would say utilizing at 64 bits version like write64() or fputs64() might
be our solution. Will look into this over the weekend.

Any input appreciated.

Best regards,

I've never ran into any such limit using slapcat... Are you stopping the

server before you start the slapcat process? What version of OpenLDAP
you running?  What OS are you running this all on?
