RE: How to start slapd without slapd.conf?


I re-read those sections. But they only describe how to convert a pre-existing slapd.conf file. So, to bootstrap slapd I created a minimal slapd.conf with just the config database and a rootdn/pw for it and converted that with slaptest. But I find it a bit awkward that slapd.conf should be mandatory to get started, but at the same time is declared deprecated in chapter 5 of the administrator's guide.

Thanks anyway!

please see section 5 [configuring slapd] of the administrator's guide.
also see man 5 slapd-config and man 8 slaptest
