Re: issue w/ LDAP that I have encountered

I am setting up OpenLDAP w/ the back-sql ( using MySQL ) db module and
GSSAPI authentication. I had the authentication working fine, as well as
the SQL database created ( via the scripts included w/ the
openldap-servers-sql RPM ) and everything seemed to be fine, except that
when I submitted any queries ( for example :
ldapsearch -h ldap.ui.tlc2.uh.edu -p 389 -D "uid=ldap,cn=gssapi,cn=auth"
), then I would get a no such object error ( something similar, I can't
find it in my terminals now, it's been buried under mounds of strace and
slapd -d1 output ). So I started testing out various parameters for
queries and selects and whatnot in slapd.conf ( which, by the way, is
please let me know if you need any more information. Also, I am more
than willing to wipe out and recreate the database in MySQL ( what's the
simplest way to do it w/out damaging anything else? ) if that's what
needs to be done.
Thanks in advance...
If your database is disposable, why are you using MySQL? Why not use a
high-performance backend like bdb or hdb?
Also, I'll note that the MIT kerberos libraries are magnitudes slower than
the Heimdal kerberos libraries, so for the server side, I highly suggest
using the Heimdal libs.
