slapindex utility and selective indexing
I am trying to determine the most time efficient way possible to add a new index to a sizable database (4Million+ entries). Re-indexing all existing indices plus the new index is going to be very time consuming.
Seems that an obvious choice would be not to re-indexing all indices defined in my slapd.conf file, but to selectively choose the index. I am thinking that if I create a custom slapd.conf with only the index of interest defined, then the slapindex utility using the -f <file> option will attempt to re-index that specific attribute.
Can this approach be performed without compromising the database or current indices? I want to make sure that there are no dependencies between index files.
