You should cd to your openldap directory and run the BDB utility
db_recover before restarting slapd.
Err, that should read "your openldap data" directory. Sorry.
This only works if he's running OpenLDAP 2.1.x and later.
Most all Fedora installations use 2.0.x, unfortunately.
Several recent threads on this list recommend you add a step to run
db_recover in your slapd startup script, because crashes happen.
Really? FC2 delivered with 2.1.29. I would also guess many installations
build from source, as I do. That leaves a lot of stock FC1 installations
by your count. Even so, since he said he in his post that he runs
up2date he undoubtedly would not fall in the 2.0.x category.
Even if it is 2.1.x or
later, he could still be using the ldbm backend, which also means the
db_recover option wouldn't work.
Funny, I thought the line:
in the slapd.conf file he posted would indicate to the contrary.
