I am no OpenLDAP expert nor be able to
help you with the error, but just like to share an idea of migrating.
your current directory and import to a new backend. (Perhaps slapcat can
replication and set the replica server to use the new db backend, when all
is synced switch from there. (Not sure though if using different backends
for replication is allowed)
I am also as new as you with regard to
LDAP, but google has been my friend, comments and suggestions regarding the
above will be very helpful.

Subject: WARNING: No dynamic
config support for database ldbm
After upgrading our ldap server to FC5 and openldap-2.3.19-4 (we are using yum
to update packages). We getting ...
WARNING: No dynamic config support for database ldbm
when starting ldap services, however it starts fine and we are not facing any
issues while authentication from that openldap or adding new entries to it
I have read in archives of this mailing list that ldbm backend is going to be
removed when 2.4 releases, now my concern is
1) how to fix this warning or just ignore it
2) If recommend to migrate to another backend database eg bdb, then how to
convert the current records to it so that if we change 'database' directive in
slapd.conf to 'bdb' it gives no error and migration would seem transparent.
Another problem which we are facing is our ldap replication is broken after we
upgraded our slave ldap server to FC6 which comes with newer version of
openldap ' openldap-2.3.27-4', when we tries to start ldap services on slave it
exit with error...
Checking configuration files for slapd: WARNING: No dynamic config
support for database ldbm.
unable to open file "/var/run/slapd.pid": 13 (Permission denied)
I am no expert of openldap neither is ldap is configured by me, now i have to
fix the replication and all other warnings..
1) Can we replication older version of openldap (master) to newer version of
master (FC5) < slave (FC6)
Any help in this regards will be greatly appreciated.
