ldap init script's "reload" function kills slapd/slurpd
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:07:12 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "service ldap reload"
slapd/slurpd processes no longer exist
slapd/slurpd continue to run, using any new changes in the
"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.
