1. cn=config and friends: Looking at the schema and methods used to
this config type, I got to considering that I could (in theory) name my
databases such as olcDatabase=MyLDAPDatabase (or the like), rather than
bdb/hdb/mdb. I then found that I couldn't and then looked it up to see why - I
found that it had a naming restriction, but not why. Aside from possible
limits within the programming as it stands now, is there some semantical issue
why this is the case? Wouldn't possibly be easier to determine which database
is which if the administrator was able to name them as they wish?
Attribute 'olcDatabase' simply defines the type of the database.
This is clearly defined in slapd-config(5).
2. mdb: I know this is the way we're expected to go with ldap
now, but what is
the point of a db that can't grow as needed?
You can raise the limit later when needed and your filesystem has still enough
