Re: slapd no response

Our openldap 2.2.24 running on Solaris 9 x86 suddently stopped
functioning this morning:( .
It can still be started up but doesn't give any response to queries:
# ps -ef |grep slapd
root 648 1 0 11:18:33 ? 0:00
/usr/local/libexec/slapd -h ldap:/// ldaps:///
# ldapsearch -x "uid=guest,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" -wsecret
ldap_bind: Can't contact LDAP server (-1)
Only kill -9 can stop the process. kill -INT or kill -TERM doesn't
Try turning on more logging and using -d on ldapsearch.
Can you show the full command you use to start slapd? Use /usr/ucb/ps
-auxwwww Is it showing up on netstat?
Do you have other system problems? (full disks, etc?)
Since you did a kill -9, you've corrupted the BDB environment, which is why
it won't restart correctly.
OL 2.2 does not have the automatic BDB database recovery that OpenLDAP 2.3
has, which is a good reason to upgrade.
You need to find the "db_recover" tool for your specific version of the BDB
backend. After stopping slapd, cd to your database directory, and run the
db_recover command. Then start slapd.
