I need your advice again :)
I have LDAP server with ldbm database on a fedora core 5 which is
running for more than 3 years without any update nor upgrade neither. So
now I've to migate this old LDAP on a new server with new Linux
distribution (Debian Lenny). I'm tune up both /etc/ldap/slapd.conf and
/var/lib/ldap/DB_CONFIG. But right now I read on a website
that backend bdb will disappear. Should I use backend hdb or it doesn't
make something different?
Hi Olivier,

we never write that bdb will disappear, but just than it is now better
to use hdb. Maybe someone on this list can argue ont this
As far as I am aware, you are not a member of the OpenLDAP project team, so I am not sure why you write emails that tend to imply that you are.
If you re-read Clément's mail, he does not claim to be a member of the OpenLDAP team. He just said :

"we never write (implied : on the Linagora's blog) that bdb will disappear..."

Clément is a Linagora's Employee, and he carefully replied that what's on the Linagora's blog can be challenged by people on this list. That was a sane mail, IMO.
