I created ldif file using slapcat. The ldif file has entries like entryUUID etc.. I removed those so that i can use ldapadd to add the missing entries.
example: When i do
ldapsearch -x -b 'uid=AHEALY,dc=local,dc=gov' '(objectclass=*)'
i get back object no object found.
when i try to add the entry i get
adding new entry "uid=AHEALY,dc=local,dc=gov"
request 2 done
ldap_add: Already exists (68)
This is happening with all the entries that are looks missing. I have no clue why this is happening. slurpd deamon is running and i know those supposedly missing entries are in the slave database.
Any ideas why this might be happening?

In general you should not copy raw database files at all, use slapcat
and slapadd like the Admin Guide says.

The slave ldap is running on an x-86 platform. I don't know if that's the reason why trying to bring up slapd on master after copying the database files to from slave to master failed.
