No, slapadd adds entries to an existing database, while slapindex
reindexes the database content.
But if you use slapadd for initital population of your database, the
appropriate indexfiles, as defined in slapd.conf, are created.
To summarize, slapadd command enables to add entries and to index
the added entries using the definition of the index listed in the
True or false ?
