Yes, from my experience this is true. At least with the bdb

I'm not sure what this means?

I would check the following:
1. Look in syslog for an error
2. Make sure that slapd is not already running (it has to be
stopped before removing the files in /var/lib/openldap).
3. Run the syntax configuration check:
4. If not running slapd as root, make sure that the permissions
are correct on /var/lib/openldap. Also if you're using TLS check
that the private key is readable by the slapd account.
5. Run slapd in the foreground printing debug info to stderr:
slapd -d LEVEL
Where LEVEL is as described for "loglevel" in slapd.conf(5).
