Re: master ldap database is not getting populated

Thanks for this clarification. I believe that i didn't recover my database properly.
  slapd was not starting. When this happened, i delete all the log files and db__ and i did db_recover -v. slapd started after i did that and when i did the search i was getting less entries as expected.
  Is there a suggested way of recovery that i can try ?

This would generally indicate that the entries are on your master, but the 
database is corrupted and needs recovering (or to be fully reloaded), 
assumin gof course that you allow anonymous access to your entries on the 
master (otherwise the serach result you got doesn't mean anything).
