We have a custom string attribute in our ldap schema that tracks the

fine. While this is not a show stopper, it would still be nice to index
this particular attribute since it is used in filters very often.

I was wondering if someone has noticed similar behavior and what the
solution might be. We have other custom attributes are being indexed and
functioning correctly.

If you add an index to an attribute that already exists, you *must* stop slapd and run slapindex.
