Sorry if this question has been asked before (but I have looked through the archives and didn't find anything). After upgrading from debian etch to lenny, I'm running the slapd version 2.4.11-1. The upgrade worked without any itches except for one thing - it seems I can't search for the attribute uidNumber anymore.

1. 2.4.11 is quite old. I'd recommend to use a more recent release.

I like to stick to debian stable, automatic security fixes are important for me. I'm not the compile-it-yourself guy.

2. Not sure what your upgrade path was. uidNumber is indexed? So I'd
suggest to stop slapd and re-index the whole database since the index
format was modified.

thanks, as stated in my other e-mails this was the answer I was looking for, I didn't know about this (and didn't think of it).

Note that when changing between minor versions it is usually required to slapcat/slapadd the database, as binary compatibility is not guaranteed. In the case of OpenLDAP 2.3/2.4, as far as I recall, no database changes occurred. However, there were minor changes (significantly, support for indexing on more matching rules for more syntaxes) which required to rebuild the indexes.
