I am setting up OpenLDAP w/ the back-sql ( using MySQL ) db module and

when I submitted any queries ( for example :
ldapsearch -h ldap.ui.tlc2.uh.edu -p 389 -D "uid=ldap,cn=gssapi,cn=auth"
-W -b"dc=tlc2,dc=uh,dc=edu"
), 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.
