i used these;

Then, i restarted ldap, and did
slapadd -l data.ldif

slapd should not be running when you use slapadd.

but id doesnt do something.
It only waits.

You should actually do this:

1)Stop slapd
2)slapcat -l data.ldif
3)Edit slapd.conf, change ldbm to bdb, add a checkpoint directive (see slapd-bdb(5)).
4)Move the existing database files
5)Add a DB_CONFIG file (see the FAQ-o-matic for some info here)
6)slapadd -l data.ldif

But it gives a message like this

[root@alibaba root]# slapadd -l data.ldif
slap_startup failed

7)Check permissions of the database files
8)Start slapd

If you are running anything older than 2.3, there may be additional steps you should take to ensure data integrity in the case of an unclean shutdown.
