So I could use some guidance an clearing out the DB or setting it
I have reviewed 10. Database Creation and Maintenance Tools in the
admin24 guide but still seem to be having trouble.
# ldapadd -f /root/initializeDB.ldif -x -D
# "cn=administrator,dc=my-domain,dc=com" -w SekRit
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)
Then either (a) You're using the wrong password for that DN, OR that DN
doesn't actually exist (either as the rootDN in the configuration files, or
as an entry in the DB).
# slapadd -l /root/initializeDB.ldif -F /etc/openldap/slapd.d/cn=config
Available database(s) do not allow slapadd
You are missing a -b option to say which DB you want slapadd to go against.
Generally, there is way too little information to go on here. Do you have
an existing DB already? I've no idea. Is cn=administrator,... a valid DN?
No idea. etc.
You can use slapcat to /export/ any existing data you have, that could
determine whether or not you have an existing DB. You may also want to
examine your configuration as to rootDN, etc, as well.
