Hi Dustin,

thanks for your response. I am just a newbie in openLDAP technology. I
need this for egroupware server which is
based on OpenLDAP for user authentication, storage of user and group
information and for LDAP based addressbook.
Hence I am looking for a solution which can allow me to do maintenance
and reparing of OpenLDAP bdb database.
