Description John Dalbec 2001-11-21 20:50:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (Windows NT 5.0; U)

Description of problem:
After running slapadd on an empty /var/lib/ldap, all searches fail with 32 no such object.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service ldap stop
2. slapindex
Do I need the -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf here?  Or did you compile that in?
3. slapcat > foo.ldif
4. mv /var/lib/ldap /var/lib/ldap.old
5. mkdir /var/lib/ldap
6. chown ldap:ldap /var/lib/ldap
7. chmod 700 /var/lib/ldap
Do I need to start and stop the server here to fill in some items?
8. slapadd -c < foo.ldif
9. slapindex
10. service ldap start
11. ldapsearch -x 'uid=jpdalbec'

Actual Results:  32 no such object

Expected Results:  0 success and a listing of my record

Additional info:

I wanted to rebuild the database because some object classes I added are not indexing correctly.  If I do a search on 
'(&(uid=...)(objectClass=eduPerson))' I get no results for some uids even though I can see the object class in the listing of their record.

Sorry, I forgot the first rule of *n*x systems administration:  when in doubt, it's a permissions problem.
I fixed my original problem with chown -R ldap:ldap /var/lib/ldap and another slapindex.
