Re: LDAPADD command hangs

Hi Quanah,
Thank you to yr responses so far. Do appreciate it.
I have already gotten in touch with Symas. Hopefully, I will get the latest
version installed and resolve these problems I've been facing.

Hi Craig,
Thanks for some of the pointers. Tried yr command, here is my output:-
[root@openldap2 tmpLDIF]# rpm -qa|grep openldap

Yup, it is an old one. I will do as advised.

The version number you gave is bogus.  Given that -V isn't supported, I'm
even more inclined to believe OpenLDAP 2.0.2x which is what RedHat ships
with everything prior to RH ES4.  Which means you are running on an
OpenLDAP release that is not supported, is horribly ancient, and has a very
unreliable backend (ldbm).  BDB may be a little more work to set up
initially, but what you get is a stability that simply doesn't exist in
LDBM.  If you want to stick with 2.0, that is your decision, but I have no
interest in answering any further questions about it, although others on
the list might.
