The command I ran was /usr/bin/db4.2_archive -d

I think when the servers stopped responding they were all busy deleting and
re-creating all their entries.

I stopped slapd then ran slapd -c rid=123,csn=0 which brought everything
back to its normal state over about ten minutes or so.

In most cases, about 50.
