Many of the slaptools use -b to specify a database. However, there is no mention
(apart from section 10.2.1. "The slapadd program" in the admin guide) in the
documentation that if there are multiple databases in the configuration, the
first one is used when no -b is given. The provided patch tries to improve the
situation by providing an explicit mention of the default database.
Seriously? In 15 years no one else has ever remarked on this, why is this even
At any rate, the added text is incorrect. Technically, "the first database in
the configuration that supports the requested operation" is used. E.g., if
back-monitor is the first DB in the config, it is skipped.
