From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; i-

Description of problem:
I'm trying to setup a ldap database for samba.
In my slapd.conf I have "database ldbm" like default.
But when starting the ldap server nothing happends. The 
directory /var/lib/ldap is empty.
I get an error with "slapcat -d 255":

slapcat startup: initiated.
backend_startup: starting database
=> ldbm_cache_open( "id2entry.dbb", 16, 600 )
<= ldbm_cache_open NULL "id2entry.dbb" errno=2 reason="No such file 
or directory")
Could not open/create id2entry.dbb
slapcat: could not open database.

I can't create a ldap database.

On Fedora Core 3 my config is working with database backend bdb, but 
not with ldbm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. installing openldap-servers
2. editing /et/openldap/slapd.conf
3. starting ldap server
4. nothing happens
5. slapcat -d 255
6. error message: ldbm_cache_open NULL "id2entry.dbb" errno=2 
reason="No such file or directory")
