If I modify olcDbDirectory of a BDB database to a broken directory, the
Modify returns success but BDB says "failed to reopen database" and
slapd shuts down. Maybe other modifications can shut down slapd too, I
It would be nice if slapd tried to restore the old config value, reopen
the old directory, and return unwillingToPerform or something to the
Modify. However I don't know how hard that would be, or how obscure a
case it is.
For that matter, maybe if the Modify broke something it could return
some diagnosticMessage. Not sure if it should return non-success since
that supposedly means the modify did not happen. Though clients may not
display the diagnosticMessage if it comes with 'success'.
