I'm running openldap 2.4.22 using Buchan's CentOS/RHEL 5 RPMs. For some
reason, although the backup script seems to be running successfully
(either manually or by cron), it produces no results whatsoever:
# cd /usr/share/openldap2.4/scripts/
# ls -la
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 27 22:14 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Dec 27 22:14 ..

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4979 Apr 27 2010 ldap-reinitialise-slave
# ./ldap-hot-db-backup -v 4
Warning: Starting backup

# ls -la /var/lib/ldap2.4/backup
drwxr-xr-x 2 ldap ldap 4096 Jan 3 19:24 .
drwxr-x--- 4 ldap ldap 4096 Jan 4 11:06 ..
I am trying to go through the script code (in the backup script and in
ldap-common) but it's no easy task. Can someone suggest some solution?
What may be going wrong? Why everything seems successful although no
backup is taken?
What are these 0 of 0 locks?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
