I've recently migrated my OpenLDAP servers configurations to the

reindex the whole database when I add the new index entry? Or can I
add it and postpone running slapindex to a later time?
Next time read the slapd-bdb(5) manpage first before wasting your time and ours.
changing index settings dynamically by LDAPModifying "cn=config"
automatically causes rebuilding of the indices online in a backâ
