Repair Openldap database

If you come across this problem like me , this might be able to help you. When ever I restart the openldap daemon at my CentOS server , I received this error : Checking configuration files for slapd: bdb_db_open: unclean shutdown detected; attempting recovery. bdb_db_open: Recovery skipped in read-only mode. Run manual recovery if errors are encountered. If you issue command slapcat , you might be able to start the openldap without any error. But after you stop the openldap daemon , you start the openldap daemon again , you will receive the same error again. Then you might think of this command : slapd_db_recover . If you use this command , you might face the same scenario. How I solve the issue about this openldap error is issue the following command in sequence . slapcat slapd_db_recover -h /var/lib/ldap Then try to start your openldap daemon again , you might find it working. ---
