Re: slapindex utility and selective indexing
Also, does slapindex delete any existing indexes that are not in the
current slapd.conf? I have not tried it. It would be nice if your
idea would work; I've had the same concern myself about how I would add
indexes to a large production directory.

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.
