Comment 2 John Holmstadt 2006-10-12 12:02:38 EDT
I don't think that patch will do the job. At least it didn't for me. With
openldap-2.3.19-4, on line 133 in /etc/init.d/ldap, "exit 1" is executed if the
configtest fails, which it will if the DB is corrupt.

I think this patch needs to be placed or called in replacement of "exit 1".
Perhaps then have a second check run to see if the DB has actually been
successfully recovered before attempting to proceed with the startup.

Patch for /etc/init.d/ldap

This seems to work well for me. I apologize if the coding and/or my logic is
Comment 4 Jan Safranek 2007-05-23 08:10:05 EDT
openldap-servers-2.3.30-2.fc6 has improved startup checks and recovery.
db_recover should be part of slapd initialization now.
