That is more an OS issue than an OpenLDAP-Issue. Which OS are you
using? On Linux look up the file /etc/security/limits.conf.
It is Linux as it happens. We added
* hard nofile 4096
to /etc/security/limits.conf at the same time that we added
ulimit -n 4096
to the init.d script for ldap. All this did was to change the syslog
error message from
daemon: accept(6) failed errno=24 (Too many open files)
daemon: 1024 beyond descriptor table size 1024
which to me smells like a recompilation is required. If there's another
way I'd love to hear about it.
