I have to agree with Quanah.

I am running Debian Woody on almost all my boxes.

On some of them I have the OpenLDAP 2.0.23 Debian packages installed and
OpenLDAP 2.2.23 locally built in /usr/local. There is no problem at all.

Anyway you should install 2.2.23 from sources.

Hi all,

It´s possibly of topic here, but lots of questions regarding

I am in the process of migrating from 2.0.27 to 2.2.23 on
Debian Woody  <---------

1. Make sure the objectclasses/attributes you are using in
2.0.27 are included in 2.2.23 schema files and are properly
defined forthem. Some schema files have changed.


This is not entirely correct. The latest slapd package on debian
woody is version 2.0.23 whilst the sid/sarge package has its
newest version of 2.1.30.

There´s currently no way of getting openldap 2.2.23 installed
from debian official package _unless_ you want to make your own
package which usually involves lots of troubles (esp. on GnuTL)

Not really.

Anyone who wants to actually run a directory *server* (as opposed to using
the local client libraries for things like pam_ldap and nss-ldap) should
wise enough to build and install their own set of the OpenLDAP packages
into a location that does not conflict with the installed client libraries
(like /opt or /usr/local).  That is the only way you will be able to
provide a stable service that can keep up with the critical bug fixes that
get applied to the packages involved.

I have a test directory server up & running on debian sarge with locally
built packages (/usr/local) and it works just fine, without conflicting
with the deprecated  libraries & binaries shipped with debian sarge.


anyway I plan to intall from source ( recompile on the machine ) the latest 2.2.X version.
