Today I got an email from another openldap user who got his DB wiped
and all data lost. db_recover does not work for him either.
This may sound dumb but I still do not understand some things. Could
you please take the time to answer these questions.
- openldap is installed from RPM in my system and in rc.local I have
this code: "service ldap start". Which is probably identical to
If my system shuts down uncleanly again, and
If openldap is started automatically at boot time and
If I use "checkpoint 8 5" directive in my config file
Will I only loose data since the last checkpoint (5 mins at most)
will I loose data since the last clean shutdown (can be 5 months).
Should db_recover be run BEFORE slapd is started at all times?
What happens if I start ldap, find out that the data is lost, and then
I have some important data in that database, and still can not figure
out what happens if the server lost power.
thank you for your time
