This patch adds needed option "-u" to slaptest.
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2005-05-19 17:47:22 EDT
The -u flag is not mandatory -- what "slaptest -u" does is run the test in
read-only mode, so that failures to obtain read-write locks on the directory
database doesn't signal an error.  The thing is that if your directory server
can't obtain a lock on its database, then that's a symptom of a problem which
needs human intervention.

Apparently it also errors out if you don't already have a database, which I'd
have missed due to assuming that the database is created with 'slapadd' first. 
Fixing in 2.2.23-5 and later.  Please reopen this bug ID if you find that this
doesn't solve the problem.
