Fixed In Version: 389-ds-base-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, under certain conditions, the dse.ldif file had 0 bytes after a server termination or when the machine was powered off. Consequently, after the system was brought up, a DS or IdM system could be unable to restart, leading to production server outages. Now, the server mechanism by which the dse.ldif is written is more robust, and tries all available backup dse.ldif files, and outages no longer occur.
