LDAP database is inconsistent.


Recover and re-index LDAP database on LDAP server used by clustered qmail service in OA using the following steps:

  1. Stop LDAP server:

    # service ldap stop
  2. Move temporary files:

    # mv /var/lib/ldap/__* /tmp/
  3. Recover LDAP database:

    # cd /var/lib/ldap/
    # slapd_db_recover
  4. Re-index LDAP database:

    # slapindex
  5. Fix files ownership:

    # chown -R ldap:ldap /var/lib/ldap/
  6. Start LDAP server:

    # service ldap start
