Hi all,

I wanted to read up on indexing, and I noticed that, in the admin guide,
the index directive  is under par. So it seems as if this is
specific to the ldbm backend ( par. 6.2.5 ). I was under the impression
that index directives were valid for bdb backends too. So, can I use
index directives for bdb? And is the syntax in still valid?
Thanks for your answers.

I'd look at the slapd-bdb man page.


That would be best.

You are correct, however, the Admin guide needs some updating, as both cachesize and index are not solely a part of LDBM (which will be removed in 2.4).

Chapter 5 of the Admin Guide contains more up to date examples, using back-bdb and back-hdb instead of back-ldbm.
