Ah ha! That probably explains how my database magically went RO. It
happened right after trying to create a browsing index, which locked up
the GUI. I had not associated the two events until know as I did not
immediately realize the database was RO, at the time. We had maybe a
dozen entries when trying to create the index so size does not appear to
be an issue with the bug.

Subject: [Fedora-directory-users] Create Browsing Index gets stuck
I'm sorry if this has already been discussed or reported as a bug. I
to find the bug report, but couldn't find it so here goes:
Quite often when I have removed all entries and put them back and
create a Browsing Index with the Console, the Console gets stuck. I
few times left it for hours but nothing happens. In this case I
the previous browsing index from the GUI and tried to create it again
People with 1400 entries. The GUI tells me it has done "Adding
index entries to server" (ticked) but it is still "Creating
in server" (not ticked). It stays in this window forever. The
status for creating browsing index" window is empty.
I cannot see any error messages in slapd-HOSTNAME/logs/errors or
admin-serv/logs/error log. The startconsole terminal doesn't show any
exceptions. Is there anywhere else I could look for clues?
If I force the window to close, the database goes to read-only mode. I
close the Console, shutdown the slapd, change the database back to
read-write mode and restart everything. The Console shows the index
been created, but if I look at slapd-HOSTNAME/db/ebiRoot/ directory,
cannot see a vlv#bymccoupeopledcebidcacdcuk.db4 file, so I guess the
index doesn't really exist? With just 1400 entries it's difficult to
Sometimes I do get the index created, but quite often not.
I'm using Fedora DS 1.0.4 on CentOS 4.4 with following JRE:
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_09-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.5.0_09-b01, mixed mode)
Thanks for any help!
