If you used -d config with slap* from OpenLDAP 2.3, you would have gotten

slapd.conf: line 11: <overlay> extra cruft after <overlay> ignored.

If you used OpenLDAP 2.4, you would have gotten an error

slapd.conf: line 11: <overlay> extra cruft after <overlay>.
slaptest: bad configuration file!

since 2.4 is much less forgiving about unrecognized statements in slapd.conf. Strengthening those checks was deferred to 2.4 to avoid changing the traditionally forgiving behavior many people seem to appreciate at mid-life of 2.3.

Ah. My test box is 2.3.39 (F8). The two live servers are 2.2.13 (RHEL 4.4) and 2.3.27 (CentOS 5.1). Soon, all servers will be CentOS 5.1 and I may install OpenLDAP 2.4.8 on them to replace the 2.3.37 stuff. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Unix Geek rps2@socal.rr.com - - - - "Very funny, Scotty.
