re: ldappasswd fails with "context csn indexing failed"
I saw this in the archive the other day, just got bitten by the same thing so
thought I'd share my fix.
ldappasswd was failing with this error:
$ ldappasswd -D "uid=user,dc=domain" -S -W -H "ldaps://ldap.server"
Re-enter new password:
Enter LDAP Password:
Result: Internal (implementation specific) error (80)
Additional info: context csn indexing failed
This is OpenLDAP server 2.2.14 - I got the same errors with 2.1.30 client, so it looked
like a server problem.
the slapd log showed :
Jul 22 15:43:35 server slapd: daemon: read activity on 12
Jul 22 15:43:35 server slapd: bdb_db_cache: db_open(objectClass) failed: Permission denied (13)
Jul 22 15:43:35 server slapd: bdb_index_read: Could not open DB objectClass
after investigation, the permissions on the bdb files were wrong - owned by root - I chmodded those
and restarted, all works now.
