Re: Segmantation fault while using slapadd

I had to used the command "ldapsearch" in the following format:

/usr/bin/ldapsearch -x -LLL -D "$binddn" -w $password -b "$base" "*" > $file

and the result I get I am using with "slapadd" and it seems to work.
offcourse this is not the ideal solution (it is an ugly hack) but I could not find a better solution.

 Take a look at my messages within the last week - this sounds like the same exact problem I was having.

I tracked it down to either a bug in slapcat that is putting in odd line returns, or out-of-order ldap entries.

We ended up writing a utility to sort the input.  Hopefully with you reporting the same issues, it will get more attention... They seem to be dismissing my reports as malformed ldif rather than a bug...

All the details are in threads on ldap user and ldap bugs.

Subject: Segmantation fault while using slapadd

Dear list members ,

I am importing a huge database from ldap 2.0.x  ldbm to 2.1.25 bdb. The 
import schema is the following:
1. Export old database using slapcat to an ldif file
2. make changes using external software to the ldif file (adding 
structural object)
3. import to the new ldap server (2.1.25) the ldif file using slapadd

The import works o.k. for a while without any problems and after a while 
it fails with the error Segmentation fault !!
I even run it in a verbose mode and it did not show any errors just 
confirmed adding objects and than suddenly it falls with a
Segmentation fault !
I also tried it on a different computer but it continues to fall with 
the same error (at different locations of the process)

It produces a core dump which I can provide upon request.

thanks in advance for your kind help.
