We have this line in slapd.conf.

Is this not automatic indexing? Or is it just specifying which attribute to index when running slapindex?
Apparently, you ran slapindex without even reading the man page. It

*must* be run when you change indexes in slapd.conf, and only in that
case. And slapd *must not* be running when you run slapindex (it
complains and refuses to start, otherwise, as far as I know).
Or, if you modify indexes using ldapmodify in cn=config, re-indexing will
be automatical, no need to run slapindex. Is this what you meant?
I think so. That means, doing ldapmodify when ldap is running live will automatically re-index the attribute?
