This is wrong. You set this *when doing slapadd* not after.



Also OL 2.1.22 was a problematic release you should dump.

BDB 4.1.x had its own issues.

I strongly suggest upgrading to BDB 4.2.52 +patches (see above website) and OL 2.2.13.

It takes 2 hours to load our 330,000 entries with 60 or so attributes being indexed (the more attributes you index, the longer it takes). It takes 20 minutes to load those entries with 5 attributes indexed.
