Description Christopher C. Weis 2004-02-10 11:22:47 EST
Description of problem:

/etc/init.d/ldap contains the "reload" function, which basically sends
slapd (and slurpd) a SIGHUP.  Instead of reloading the configuration
file, it simply kills slapd (and slurpd).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "service ldap reload"
Actual results:
slapd/slurpd processes no longer exist

Expected results:
slapd/slurpd continue to run, using any new changes in the
configuration files.

Additional info:
"service ldap restart" is a workaround, but it's not very efficient,
especially on large directory servers.

Reload actually never worked, and can't be done simply.  Removing the
option because it does more harm than good.
