That is exactly what you want to see.  Slapd noticed that DB_CONFIG
changed, so it is running database recovery to apply the new changes.
I was convinced than DB_CONFIG settings could not get changed after the
initial database creation.


Did that change at some point ? Also, is it
true for all settings, or only a subset of available ones ?

All settings can be changed; that has always been the case. In the past
you needed to manually run db_recover to make the changes take effect. In
2.4 back-bdb/hdb detects the change and does the recovery automatically.

This has been the case since OpenLDAP 2.3, IIRC ;)
