Re: slapcat error
Are you sure your active bdb backend files are kept in /var/lib/ldap?
It seems weird that your installation is running OK if those are the
only files you've got.
What do you have for the 'directory' directive in slapd.conf?

My OpenLDAP installation seems to be running ok, running on Fedora 8 X64
w/ openldap 2.3.43., users and groups are operating fine from LDAP.
however, i'm trying to make a copy of all of the data for backup
purposes, and for some reason, I can't run slapcat.
[root@roark ldap]# slapcat -v -l /root/backup.ldif -b
bdb_db_open: Warning - No DB_CONFIG file found in directory
Expect poor performance for suffix dc=mdah,dc=state,dc=ms,dc=us.
bdb_db_open: db_open(/var/lib/ldap/id2entry.bdb) failed: No such file or
bdb(dc=mdah,dc=state,dc=ms,dc=us): Unknown locker ID: 0
backend_startup_one: bi_db_open failed! (2)
so /root/backup.ldif wasn't created. I look in /var/lib/ldap and it
[root@roark ldap]# ls -l /var/lib/ldap/

Where are all the missing files!?!?!?!??!?! I'm scared to even restart
slapd because it probably wouldn't start properly. On my server at home
with a similar configuration, it has more files in /var/lib/ldap such as
cn.dbd, id2entry.bdb, displayName.dbd, dn2id.bdb, gidNumber.bdb,
memberUid.bdb, objectClass.bdb, sambaDomainName.bdb,
sambaPrimaryGroupSID.bdb, sambaSID.bdb, sn.bdb, uid.bdb, and
So what can I do to get id2entry.bdb and such back on roark so that I
can do a slapcat?
