Re: OpenLDAP does not seem to start

Quoting sgmayo@mail.bloomfield.k12.mo.us:

Everything has been running fine for months. ...

Sounds familiar.

... it seems after the LDAP daemon was stopped, it could not restart.

Have you tried to figure out why this is?

Jan 20 11:27:56 school1 rpc.statd[1522] nss_ldap: failed to bind to LDAP
server ldap:// Can't contact LDAP server
Jan 20 11:27:56 school1 rpc.statd[1522] nss_ldap: reconnecting to LDAP
server (sleeping 64 seconds)...

That's just a client program letting you know that it can't contact its LDAP server. It would be more interesting to know what's preventing that LDAP server (slapd) from starting up.

The and are the same server and is the one that LDAP is sitting on so it is not trying to contact another server with

Irrelevant. What is preventing slapd from starting up? If the loglevel statement in your slapd.conf is still set to "none", comment it out, or set it to something more helpful (like 256), restart slapd and see what shows up in the syslog. If that doesn't give you enough information, increase the loglevel until it tells you why it's not starting up.

Is my db corrupted possibly after the electric outage?

Possibly, but you will likely save yourself a lot of time and effort if you first try to figure out what the actual cause of the problem is before you start jumping to conclusions. Still, it's always good to have a backup.

Good luck,
