Nor do the tools need such an option; you can just use su. The reason slapd
can't be started with just "su ldap" is because it may need root privs to open
the listener sockets. That's the only reason it has -u/-g options.
At present, it seems that if you want to do the conversion while slapd is
running, and for a slapd that runs as non-root, something like this is the
# slapd -u ldap -g ldap -d none -h
ldap://localhost:391/ -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf -F /etc/openldap/slapd.d
-The configuration will be converted
-slapd won't start up
What makes you say that?
-you will see any relevant errors
-all the files will be owned by the ldap user/group
-if it succeeds, a restart of slapd is all that is necessary to continue
That seems like far more trouble than just using su...
