Description Jeff Sheltren 2008-08-19 11:40:22 EDT
Description of problem:
service ldap start fails and does not output any error.

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

How reproducible:
From a clean install, run 'service ldap start'

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openldap-servers
2. service ldap start
Actual results:
No error output, but init script fails due to missing slurpd binary.

Expected results:
slapd should be started

Additional info:
slurpd has been deprecated in openldap 2.4 and is no longer included.  See

Attached is a patch against ldap.init to remove slurpd references and checks

Where did you get the /etc/init.d/ldap script from? I just checked that openldap-servers-2.4.11-1.fc10 (i.e. latest in rawhide) comes with init script which does not contain any 'slurpd'.

It seems to me there is something wrong in your system. It's possible that RPM did not replace old initscript with new one, could you please check it?

Please run 'rpm -q openldap-servers' and 'rpm -V openldap-servers' and review results.

Hi Jan, you're absolutely right.  Somehow I switched the ldap init script with an older one.  Sorry for the noise.
