Re: LDAPADD command hangs

Hi Quanah,
I tried doing slapd -VV but had this error:-
"[root@openldap root]# slapd -VV
slapd: invalid option -- V
usage: slapd options
        -d level        Debug Level
        -f filename     Configuration File
        -g group        Group (id or name) to ran as
        -h URLs List of URLs to serve
        -l sysloguser   Syslog User (default: LOCAL4)
        -n serverName   service name
        -r directory
        -s level        Syslog Level
        -u user User (id or name) to ran as
doesn't seem to work.

We originally went for bdb but encountered problems hence we switched to
using ldbm. I can't recall what it was, don't have the log anymore.
Presuming the openldap version is correct. What should I do next ?

Also, I noticed in my slave machine. The CRL data is not the same as what is
in the master. I thought it should be replicating the master. But clearly
its not doing so. How can one troubleshoot this to find out what is going on

Eh, no such thing as OpenLDAP v2.16.  I'd bet it is OpenLDAP 2.0.2x.

slapd -VV should show the version.

Okay, first, I'd suggest building your own OpenLDAP version, and storing it
separately from the system's ancient, deprecated, and unsupported version
of OpenLDAP.  Perhaps /usr/local or /opt.  And then, I suggest switching to
bdb as your database, not ldbm, which is not a very robust or reliable
database format.  You'll need to compile numerous software pieces to do all
this of course.  Or, optionally, you can purchase prebuilt distributions
from a company like Symas (http://www.symas.com) if you don't feel like
doing it yourself.
