I'm (still :) trying to fully automate ldap installation for our
specific deployment with setup-ds.pl in silent mode.. I have an inf
which uses ConfigFile directives to try to define indexes, cache sizes
and other settings for the directory server. My problem is, only a
small part of those ConfigFiles are applied when I check dse.ldif
after, but no errors anywhere. I tried using --debug but the only
output I could see of relevance was:
"+Processing config.ldif ..."
"+Processing indexes.ldif ..."
NONE of the settings in the ConfigFile make it to dse.ldif except
"nsslapd-dbcachesize" and "nsslapd-cachememsize".. These are both set
properly, or I would doubt if the files had been processed at all. But
the the replication manager isn't created and size/timelimits are not
set and so on, and the same with indexes. I can see nothing in the
output log from the script and there's nothing in the logs for the
newly created server.
If I instead add the ConfigFiles with ldapmodify, things work fine.
My guess is I'm trying to modify attributes that don't exist yet? The
Red Hat documentation at
seems to indicate that I should be able to create a replication
manager, but the difference I can tell from the docs is that their RM
is made in the directory itself while I'm trying to use the cn=config
Unfortunately, the LDIF modify parser does not work correctly - it does
not support the full LDIF modify statement syntax (due to a bug in
Mozilla::LDAP). So there are a few limitations, all of which you seem
to have run into:
Here's a snippet from my config.ldif:
# doesnt get created
dn: cn=replication manager,cn=config
cn: replication manager
Don't use changetype: add - if there is
no changetype, the parser
assumes you want to add the entry.
# is set properly
dn: cn=config,cn=ldbm database,cn=plugins,cn=config
# is not set
dn: cn=default instance config,cn=chaining database,cn=plugins,cn=config
The parser doesn't understand the '-'. So
instead, do this:
That is, group all of the command statements together, then the
attributes and values, without using any '-'.
# is set
dn: cn=userRoot,cn=ldbm database,cn=plugins,cn=config
