I hate making these things long because folks lose interest and stop
reading but my environment is complex so:
Along with the main database, I am also using monitor and accesslog.
Recently I began storing ssh public keys in LDAP for use with ssh-lpk.
This past weekend ~15k accounts were added to LDAP and maybe 700 ssh
keys (I manage LDAP not account management..). Replication failed on 2
nodes. I noticed on these nodes incoherency because I was using an
outdated custom schema file (my fault) so I decided to wipe the database
and reload it from backup. Not a big deal but I notice that my nightly
slapcat ldifs (slapcat -n 2 -l ldap.ldif) are polluted with accesslog
entries that *replace* the original entries. For example, my account dn
won't include, say, sshPublicKey, but I'd see a reqMod entry with this
I can see every dn with a ldapsearch but am missing many dns using
slapcat. Obversely, when I do slapcat, I get dn attributes from
accesslog that I can't see with ldapsearch. It looks like some weird
cross-pollination of the 2 databases.
Maybe there is something I am missing in my config. Here is a snippet
-- the full config is available upon request.
