I inherited an OpenLDAP server that is in production use and it suffers from a lack of knowledge and I am slowly trying to remedy that.
One of the things I noticed was that it complained at startup about the lack of a DB_Config and a caution about it being slow – which it definitely seems to be.
As this server is in production use, I am not allowed to do anything to impact it without thorough testing – which I think I have done.
Does anyone see any problems if I just drop the following DB_Config file in a data directory so the next time the server is restarted, it takes effect? (Yes, it’s a DBD configuration)
# cat DB_CONFIG
set_cachesize 0 10485760 1
Seems safe and I do back it up regularly but if I drop the file in the data directory, I may not be watching when the server is patched/restarted.
