RE: after power failure ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server (81)
i have renamed the database folder and started slapd so i was able to connect to ldap server but seems all the database are vanished
am now trying to get back my old database from ldif file
with this command ldapmodify
but i always get this msg
ldapmodify: update failed: dc=fg,dc=local
ldap_modify: Constraint violation (19)
additional info: structuralObjectClass: no user modification allowed
i also want to ask what is the way to to recover the database without making/ creating a new database
i have tried db-recover tool and it produce this output which i don't understand
db_recover: Finding last valid log LSN: file: 1 offset 28
Sounds as though the BDB database didn't appreciate the sudden power
loss! ( I know from bitter experience that it is pretty intolerant
ounder these circumstances ;-))
Berkely comes with a database recovery tool to get this back (check out
their website for details), maybe someone else here can help?
If you're in dire straits (sounds like you might be!) the quick & dirty
method is to rename the database directory (if you're in doubt the path
to this is stored in your slapd.conf file under the Database directory
directive), and restart slapd. At this point the process will work but
you're directory is obviously empty. You need to restore it from a
recent ldif backup using ldapadd.
Apologies to the more qualified posters for the kluge!
Hopefully this will be helpful.
