Description Steven Pritchard 2006-07-18 17:19:38 EDT
After a crash, ldap startup will usually fail due to one or more of these issues:

* Incorrect permissions on /var/lib/ldap/* (already partially detected on startup).
* Corrupt database (usually fixed with db_recover).
* Indexing issues (fixed with slapindex).

I'm attaching a completely untested patch that should add a "clean" argument to
ldap.init that will run db_recover and slapindex.  I'd argue that this should
happen during startup (possibly as a configurable thing).

The patch should also catch when /var/lib/__db.* aren't owned by the ldap user.

openldap-servers-2.3.30-2.fc6 has improved startup checks and recovery.
db_recover should be part of slapd initialization now.
Comment 3 Steven Pritchard 2007-05-23 10:40:59 EDT
I don't see anything about db_recover in the init script.  Is this something 
slapd does internally?
Comment 4 Jan Safranek 2007-05-24 03:06:50 EDT
Yes, slapd has ability to recover itself (at least with bdb backend). Of course,
it will not recover from every possible error state, neither does db_recover.
