As i wrote in one of my last emails i've done the configuration from my
ldap server with the documentation from the ubuntuusers wiki (this is in
german, but the steps should be clear)
Which is executed (the script) at slapd install time!

...such that slapcat generates an working slapd config.
slapcat,slapadd,slapindex and slapd is different names for the same
Thanks for this hint. I never had have a look at this before...
These binaries are hardlinked ;-) Fine.
ls -li slap*
1045854 -rwxr-xr-x 9 root root 1284316 2011-11-14 22:27 slapacl

My ldap directory (with cn=config Backend - i never had have a
slapd.conf!) is working fine

Oh ok, i think this is what Quannah
mentioned in his mails. I'll try to
understand this in the next few days.
The falty line continuations in the ldif fragments in your emails
explains a number of your problems.
Excuse me please, but my english isn't good
enough to understand this
sentence. Could give me some more explanations?
For ldapvi you should understand that ldapvi uses an modified ldif, for
example for adding nodes in an ldif tree.
The syntax for ldapvi and ldapadd differs.
Ok, i shoud read not only the
documentation belonging the ldif format...
The description for ldapvi should be the next one...
Anyway, the monitoring backend is still working, but the script from
does not work for me...
Unfortunately i have not so much time to check all details... and my
programming skill does not touch the perl language...
The idea of activate the monitoring in slapd, was the showing from the
ldap state in the munin tool... I also opened a thread in the
munin-users mailinglist, but they couldn't help me...
PS: So please excuse my english writing. I hope its understandable for
this technical facts.
