Description mgawdun 2000-04-25 17:33:58 EDT
Openldap is configured to send its logging information to the local4 log
selector.  Although logging is turned off by default, if it is turned on
syslog discards it.

To reproduce:
- add the line "loglevel 4095" to /etc/openldap/slapd.conf
- restart slapd
- begin a futile hunt for slapd logging information (optional)

- append "local4.*   /var/log/ldap" to /etc/syslogd.
- configure logrotate to rotate above file

facility by default.  Please reopen this bug ID if you find that this is not the
