   It can still be started up but doesn't give any response to queries:

  # ldapsearch -x "uid=guest,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com" -wsecret
  # "uid=tech"
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.
