Re: OpenLdap unstable on RHEL5 & Centos5 with db4
Yeah but we did not wanted to have both the versions to run on our
server or reside on our server. Also i missed out the major part that we
have a complete build system where we roll out our own ISO's with custom
packages....... so we have replaced every thing in the base of the OS.
Even we have upgraded the db4 rpm including the openldap, cyrus,postifx
and a lot more rpms.
All the issues were solved once the rpms were recompiled.

Thanks, i downloaded RPMS from the link you send me but if i remove
the original RPMS i have a lot of dependencies one of them is
postfix. It gives libldap errors. So what i did was i recompiled
postifx on a system having the new ldap rpms installed and used that
postfix rpm on my setup. This solved the issue. I had to make changed
in the DB_CONFIG file to match the cache size suited to my systems
memory and also copied the same file to some of the application which
need the DB4 library like /var/imap/db .This solved 99% of my problems.
You went about it one of the ways possible; however, installing
Buchan's rpms will mean that they exist *parallel* to Red Hat's, so
Red Hat's offerings don't have to be removed. I'm guessing that their
are dependencies to the Red Hat client stuff and keeping these will
obviate the remaining 1% of your problem. In fact, I have exactly the
same on one of the RHEL5 servers on my site, where I can't use
Buchan's client rpm and have to use Red Hat's.
OT: I hope you discovered Simon J. Mudd's Postfix srpm, since it
enables you to upgrade Postfix to latest stable (d.d. 2.5.1)

I am running Openldap and db4
[root@build ~]# slapd -V
@(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.3.27 (Mar 14 2007 17:44:50) $
DB4 vcersion db4-4.3.29-9
We have a address book containing around 500 to 2000 addresses
stored in it. Every thing works fine for some days and then it
crashes. I see nothing in the logs. We are using a custom schema
attached with this email. Before we upgraded from the default
openldap in centos4.4 to Centos5.0 it was working perfectly, is
there any compatibility issues with the schema & the new package.
Indeed; this is Red Hat's version of OpenLDAP which is basically
unstable and runs a deprecated db4 version. Believe me you are not
the first person to experience this and you will not be the last.
Moreover, however many backports Red Hat / CentOS will do of it in
the future it can, by definition, never get any better.
I'm a RHEL5 sysadmin and this is not a new matter for Red Hat
