OpenLDAP v2.0.7 and roaming access..

Post by Matti Juutilaine » Wed, 04 Apr 2001 17:07:11


I tried to install OpenLDAP 2.0.7 and support for Netscape Roaming
Access. I used LDAP Linux Howto and instructions found in

(Using NetScape with OpenLDAP v2.x)

First I installed the database (GDBM v1.8.0) and then I installed
OpenLDAP. I did not notice any problems while installing them. After
that I edited configuration files.

Then the problems begun: slapd didn't start at all. I started it with
command "/usr/local/libexec/slapd -h ldap:// -d 1" and it
prints following output:

daemon_init: listen on ldap://
daemon_init: 1 listeners to open...
daemon: initialized ldap://
daemon_init: 1 listeners opened
slapd init: initiated server.
slapd startup: initiated.
slapd starting

It just jams right there. With an option -d 1 I got little more
information about the exact point:

slapd startup: initiated.
slapd starting
daemon: added 6r
daemon: select: listen=6 active_threads=0 tvp=NULL

And there it is. Nothing happens. The log indicates that all the
configuration files are loaded successfully. Does anyone have any
similar experiences or tips how to get it work?

Thanks in advance,

1. openldap-2.0.7-14 : Where are ldapadd and ldif2ldbm?


I just installed openldap-2.0.7-14.i386.rpm on a RH 7.0, but the RPM
doesn't include any of the utilities to add entries to LDAP, such as
ldif2ldbm or ldapadd. Those used to be there in openldap-1.2.x.rpm.

Is there sthing like openldap-utilities.rpm that I should install?
