How are you starting DS in rc2.d? If you try to start it
directly with command line, you get core dumps.
The secret is to call it early in rc2.d by calling the
start-slapd script itself.
If you get the "Implementing LDAP in the Enterprise" book,
they have a prototype start script [starts both ldap and
the iPlanet admin server] and an install script that loads
it into init.d and links it from rc2.d. It is easier to
mod the prototype with your pathnames and install it
Could swear I have seen similar materials on either Sunsolve
If you can't get the book or find it, post again [or remove
the junk from my email] and mail me directly and I'll mail
you a copy of my script from my work address.
