RE: index generation failed

Ok...after 4 hours of troubleshooting I post an email, and decide to start
adding data from scratch and found what I think was my error right away (of
course).  I was following a tutorial that told me to add the base (domain)
entry as an organizational unit.  I'm guessing having an organizational unit
as the base, with organization units underneath and no organization killed
the objectClass index.  Any reason why slapadd would allow this though?
Makes me think I should use ldapadd instead as a general rule since it's
more strict.

Subject: index generation failed


I'm doing my first LDAP install and almost completed it without a hitch!
Unfortunately LDAP commands fail on me every time, and I can't figure out
why.  For example, I want to add "Groups" (in an ldif file).  Here's the

dn: ou=Groups,dc=tarity,dc=com
ou: Groups
objectClass: organizationalUnit

If I do it using slapadd it works great!  But if I do it using ldapadd, it
fails with the following error message:
"ldap_add: Internal (implementation specific) error (80)
additional info: index generation failed

I get similar error messages when I try to modify or delete records as well
via ldapmodiy.

I traced this down to an index issue (OBVIOUSLY) and removed the following
line from my slapd.conf file (last line in the file):
index	objectClass	eq

When I commented this line out, it worked like a champ...the thing is, I
would like to USE indexes (I've been told their helpful after all:) )

Does anyone know what might be happening here?  Why does the insert of the
object work, but the insert of the index fail?  Is there something I need to
do to configure indexes that I missed during setup?  I'm on Gentoo, using
openldap 2.1.26.

Thanks in advance!
