     The  slapd version is 2.1.30-3.  We loaded the most recent version

The backend database is set to bdb.  We used the default that came with
the package.
     Its just strange because we had the database set so that the fields
were correct and working.  We did some ACL experiments with modifications
to some Samba fields, but they really should not have affected the posix
field for the homeDirectory setting.  We only used the ldapmodify command
to add and modify Samba fields so I was surprised when I found the
homeDirectory field set back to the way it was originally.   I must have
inadvertently done something to set it back.


I'll note that OpenLDAP 2.1 is deprecated, and OpenLDAP 2.2 is the current supported OpenLDAP release. If you are just starting your OpenLDAP deployment, I highly recommend moving to OpenLDAP 2.2 instead of getting involved with 2.1. There are many improvements in the 2.2 release over the 2.1 release.
