Re: BDB vs. HDB

Given a brand new OpenLDAP 2.2.23 installation, is there any reason to
continue to use BDB instead of HDB, or can I safely move everything to
HDB? Do the Berkley 4.2.52+ db_* tools support HDB? I recall a problem
with db_verify once upon a time...

The issue with db_verify remains in OpenLDAP 2.2 back-hdb on Little-Endian
(e.g. Intel x86) hardware. The issue is gone in OpenLDAP 2.3. Since the fix
involves an incompatible database format change, it will not be backported to 2.2.
