Re: Write changed immediately to disk

Is this more of an OS issue versus an OpenLDAP issue?   Since OpenLDAP does not have raw access to the physical disk, it depends on the OS to flush it's buffers, so hitting reset on a system like that may cause things to get lost in the cache/buffer for the file system??

Hello List,

what settings do i need to write my ldap changes (almost) immedialtely
to disk?
I do not need much of performance but would rather have a higher security.

That is the default behavior for slapd, no other settings are needed.

In my case i add a samba user to my ldap DB, then after 15 seconds i reset that box by pressing the reset button.
After the box has rebootet the added user is not there anymore.

So i am not quite sure if its really writing to disk streight away.

Thanks, Mario
