Re: Apparent database corruption causing bus errors

Sorry, like I said I'm very new to this so I'm not certain what info is pertinent.

From slapd.conf:

$OpenLDAP: pkg/ldap/servers/slapd/slapd.conf,v ... database bdb

This is my first installation, so everything is more or less set to defaults.

Also, doing a quick "locate" I don't seem to have recover_db installed. Is it something I can install after the fact or is this related to my database type/OpenLDAP version?

Thanks for your help!

You left out a lot of key information like the version of openldap,

might want to try the fink-installed db_recover.

Hey folks,

I've been using openLDAP casually on my Mac OS 10.3 system for about 6
months now (via fink installation).

I had a power outage recently and now my LDAP crashes on search
consistently with a bus error.

I attempted to do a slapcat to extract the data and (after exporting
several entries)  I see the following:

entry_decode: "8Z"
<= entry_decode(8Z)
# id=0000007f
Bus error

Since there's no way "8Z" is a valid record, I'm assuming my database has
been corrupted.  Is there any way to recover the data beyond this record
or to repair the database?

So far my searches are making me believe I'm going to have to export the
data I can, recreate the database and re-add all missing records.  I'm
hoping there may be an easier solution?

Thanks for your time!
