Re: 2.3 slapd_db_recover

Hmm... it seems related:

$ slapd_db_recover blah
usage: db_recover [-ceVv] [-h home] [-P password] [-t [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.SS]]

(I am assuming it is related because the useage line refers to "db_recover" and not "slapd_db_recover".)

However, they are not identical:
$ ll /usr/bin/db_recover
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root root 8704 Feb 21  2005 /usr/bin/db_recover
$ ll /usr/sbin/slapd_db_recover
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 8932 Aug 12  2006 /usr/sbin/slapd_db_recover

Obviously, the difference may be superficial.

But, I'd still like to know where the "slapd_db_*" apps come from.

BTW, I run CentOS 4.4 and the rpm came from the centos repo:

$ rpm -qlp openldap-servers-2.2.13-6.4E.i386.rpm |grep slapd_db

I had been using openldap 2.2.13 installed via yum.

I installed 2.3.35 via src. But, I don't see slapd_db_recover (or any of
the related apps; slapd_db_checkpoint, slapd_db_dump, etc.)

I also did a search thru the 2.3.35 src files and I don't see any special
configure/make flags that builds them.

Am I missing something? Is there is "tools" package I need to install?

None of those are commands supplied by OpenLDAP. They look like BDB DB commands prefixed with "slapd_". Must be something weird your distro does.
