We are upgrading our servers to RedHat 5.1, and in the process trying

Note that RH's OpenLDAP version is primarily built (and tested) to
provide LDAP libraries.  They care less about the server - they
even link it with Berkeley DB version 4.3, which OpenLDAP configure
normally refuses to use because it doesn't work well with OpenLDAP.

So, you are better off building OpenLDAP and Berkeley DB yourself, or
you can get a prebuilt bundle elsewhere.  Symas offers prebuilts
(www.symas.com), and I think Buchan Milne keeps RPMs somewhere but
I the URL I found doesn't answer now:
I don't have access to anorien any more, not even to put up a notice that
the packages have moved to: http://staff.telkomsa.net/packages/

2.3.41 and 2.4.8 should appear this week if I'm not stuck in meetings
without wifi access too much.

So the only suggestion is to install a different (non-RH) version and
hope that helps?

No, upgrade to a version that has many bugfixes over the version you are 
currently running, and for which issues you log on the ITS that will be 
looked at by the developers. Note that I don't run back-sql myself ...

Or, log support tickets with Red Hat.


Do your RPMs for OpenLDAP-Server include SQL support even thought you do not run back-sql yourself?
