Description Alexey Baj 2005-10-20 03:59:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux) KHTML/3.4.2 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
After power failure there is a high probability that ldap startup script would  
hang or would fail but report success. To make it start again one has to  
either recreate databases or run db_recover -h /var/lib/ldap, THEN run  
slaptest as user ldap.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start slapd   
2. press 'reset'   
3. boot computer again  

Actual Results:  boot process hangs on "Starting slapd"   
or  . 
"Starting slapd [ OK ]", but slapd is not running. 

Expected Results:  At very least, init script should not block booting, and report failure if 
slapd fails to start. 
Maybe good thing is to run db_recovery each time slapd starts. 

Additional info:

When one manually runs db_recover $PATH_TO_LDAP_DB, then /sbin/service ldap 
start, in $PATH_TO_LDAP_DB files __db.* will be created with root permissions, 
and slapd would still not run. Cause is slaptest in init script.
