RE: are patches important for the openldap installation?


Thank you for pointed this out. I have no idea about what are these packages

The slapadd and ldapadd were not working after my administrator installed openldap for me. I suspect there are something missing in the installation. I will try install openldap one more time following the INSTALL document comes with the software. Hope that will solve the problem

Those instructions are invalid. They specifically recommend Berkeley DB 6.1.23 and patch the OpenLDAP configure script to defeat our BDB version check. BDB 6.x's license is incompatible with OpenLDAP and using it will make you liable to a visit from Oracle's lawyers.
