Additional comments:
Some users reported database corruption problems with OpenLDAP. If you experience such problems, a possible workaround is to switch the database backend, that OpenLDAP is using from "bdb" to "ldbm". The script /usr/share/doc/packages/imapweb32/tools/ can do this for you. Just execute it and it will take all necessary actions for you. If you want to do the migration by hand, just follow this short description.
  1. Shut down the LDAP server: rcldap stop killall -9 slapd
  2. Run db_recover (this step is only necessary, if your database is actually corrupted): db_recover -h /var/lib/ldap
  3. Dump the LDAP database to a text file: slapcat > /root/ldap_dump.ldif
  4. Clean up the backend directory (instead of just removing the files, you might want to move them to another directory) rm /var/lib/ldap/*.bdb rm /var/lib/ldap/log.* rm /var/lib/ldap/__db.*
  5. Update /etc/openldap/slapd.conf Put a comment sign in front of the line: #checkpoint 3000 10 and change the following line: database bdb to: database ldbm
  6. Reload the data to the LDAP server: slapadd -v -l /root/ldap_dump.ldif
  7. Start the LDAP server and check if it is running: rcldap start ldapsearch -x
