Re: Windows OpenLDAP (slapd) startup error

I'm trying to look up this error, but cant find what it means. I'm using
windows, and this is the error I find in the windows logs:
The description for Event ID ( 1281 ) in Source ( openldap-slapd ) cannot
be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry
information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote
computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this
description; see Help and Support for details. The following information
is part of the event: The event log file is corrupt..
When I try to start the service, I specifically get:
Windows could not start the OpenLDAP Directory Service on Local Computer.
For more information, review the System Event log. If this is a
non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to
service-specific error code 19.
I am using the default slapd.conf and ldap.conf files.
I received the LDAP schema from the original server that this is to be a
pass-through for. The schema is in a set (read: horde) of plain text
ldiff files from a Sun Directory Service server, and I suspect given what
I have seen in google, there is an incompatibility in these files. I was
wondering if anyone had any ideas for me on how to narrow down the
location of the error in the horde of files?
You can try running slapd.exe with -d -1 for debugging info manually. You
are likely going to have to become fairly familiar with Schema to get
