-d <level> | ?
This option sets the slapd debug level to <level>. When level is a `?' character, the various debugging levels are printed and slapd exits, regardless of any other options you give it. Current debugging levels are
1 trace function calls
2 debug packet handling
4 heavy trace debugging
8 connection management
16 print out packets sent and received
32 search filter processing
64 configuration file processing
128 access control list processing
256 stats log connections/operations/results
512 stats log entries sent
1024 print communication with shell backends
2048 print entry parsing debugging
65535 enable all debugging
Debugging levels are additive. That is, if you want to trace function calls and watch the config file being processed, you would set level to the sum of those two levels (in this case, 65). Consult <ldap.h> for more details.-f <filename>
Note that slapd must have been compiled with -DLDAP_DEBUG defined for any debugging information beyond the two stats levels to be available.
This option specifies an alternate configuration file for slapd.-i
This option tells slapd that it is running from inetd instead of as a stand-alone server. See the next section on running slapd from inetd for more details.-p <port>
This option specifies an alternate TCP port on which slapd should listen for connections. The default port is 389.
where ETCDIR has the value you gave in the Make-common file during the pre-build configuration, and <option> is one of the options described below. Unless you have specified a debugging level, slapd will automatically fork and detach itself from its controlling terminal and run in the background. Any of the options given above can be given to slapd to point it at a different configuration file, listen on another port, etc.
To kill off slapd safely, you should give a command like this
kill -TERM `cat $(ETCDIR)/slapd.pid`
Killing slapd by a more drastic method may cause its LDBM databases to be corrupted, as it may need to flush various buffers before it exits. Note that slapd writes its pid to a file called slapd.pid in the ETCDIR you configured in Make-common. You can change the location of this pid file by changing the SLAPD_PIDFILE variable in include/ldapconfig.h.edit.
Slapd will also write its arguments to a file called slapd.args in the ETCDIR you configured in Make-common. You can change the location of the args file by changing the SLAPD_ARGSFILE variable in include/ldapconfig.h.edit.
Step 1 is to add a line like this to your /etc/services file:
ldap 389 # ldap directory serviceStep 2 is to add a line like this to your /etc/inetd.conf file:
ldap stream tcp nowait nobody $(ETCDIR)/slapd slapd -i
where ETCDIR has the value you gave it in the Make-common file during pre-build configuration. Finally, send inetd a HUP signal, and you should be all set.
