Description Félix 2013-10-30 07:04:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Init script runs a configtest before start. That configtest function tests db directories. The regular expression to get dbdirs checks for lines like:
directory       /var/lib/ldap/something

but correct syntax for slapd.conf is:
directory       "/var/lib/ldap/something"

so configtest checks if "/var/lib/ldap/something" (with quotes) is a directory, and of course it fails, so slapd doesn't start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openldap-servers
2. Use a config file /etc/openldap/slapd.conf, not config dir.
3. Set a directory directive like:
directory       "/var/lib/ldap/something"
4. Try to start service.

Actual results:
No output. slapd doesn't start.

Expected results:
slapd starts.

Additional info:
slaptest returns "config file testing succeeded"
