Re: OpenLDAP Log files

Hi Scott,

on my SLES11 Box the logfiles are written into /var/log/messages.
That seems to be the default on my box, but could differ on yours.

You can set higher and lower loglevel with doubled numbers, i.e. slapd "-d -256" could be a good idea see some usable stuff. :)

Where are the log files from slapd at and/or how do I read them?

I did a 'slapd -d -1' and the pages just keep flying by and never stop
without a ctrl-c.  I have run a slapd_db_recover on this Fedora 10 box,
but that did not seem to fix the problem I guess.

I did slapcat the directory to an ldif file yesterday, but I am wondering
if it did not already contain some bad data.  I may see if I can slapadd
it back in if ldap does not have to be running.  If it does then I will
have to do something else.

Thanks for any info.  Took me 7 hours to track down the intermittent
problems yesterday since it seemed to be server problems and now I am
starting out again on the same track it seems.
