Aha! Your server is using LDAP-based config so it is ignoring the config
Does these changes that we are making into slapd.conf really being
processed? Normally, i see just the "-F /etc/ldap/slapd.d" flag
the "-f /etc/ldap/slapd.conf".
I suspect the config file was converted to a config dir during the
Debian upgrade process, so the file is now being ignored.
I also suspect that there may not be a valid password set on the
cn=config suffix, so you will not be able to manage the server through
Since it's starting on ldapi:/// he should just do a SASL EXTERNAL bind on
ldapi:// using Unix root. Pretty sure Debian packages it with the
appropriate authz-regexp already configured.
Tks for the tips guys. I'll try all this stuff at launch time here in Brazil
(about 2 hours from now). There are to many users using Samba right now, and
every time I have to restart the OpenLDAP something on samba crashes.
The entire point of using cn=config for configuration is that config changes
don't require slapd restarts.
As far as i'm concerned, i didn't have the need to use SASL, and it seems that
all this SASL mechanism was auto-introduced in my setup after the upgrade. Is
it safe to edit /etc/defaults/slapd and remove the "ldapi:///" parameter in
SLAPD_SERVICES line or i can break something very hard doing this?
Removing that would be dumb. It's there to give you an easy means to
administer the server.
