NAME

slapindex - SLAPD index to LDIF utility  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sbin/slapindex [-v] [-c] [-g] [-q] [-d level] [-b suffix] [-n dbnum] [-f slapd.conf] [-F confdir]

 

DESCRIPTION

Slapindex is used to regenerate slapd(8) indices based upon the current contents of a database. It opens the given database determined by the database number or suffix and updates the indices for all values of all attributes of all entries. Databases configured as subordinate of this one are also re-indexed, unless -g is specified.  

OPTIONS

-v
enable verbose mode.
-c
enable continue (ignore errors) mode.
-g
disable subordinate gluing. Only the specified database will be processed, and not its glued subordinates (if any).
-q
enable quick (fewer integrity checks) mode. Performs no consistency checks when writing the database. Improves indexing time, however the database will most likely be unusable if any errors or interruptions occur.
-d level
enable debugging messages as defined by the specified level.
-b suffix
Use the specified suffix to determine which database to generate output for. The -b cannot be used in conjunction with the -n option.
-n dbnum
Generate output for the dbnum-th database listed in the configuration file. The -n cannot be used in conjunction with the -b option.
-f slapd.conf
specify an alternative slapd.conf(5) file.
-F confdir
specify a config directory. If both -f and -F are specified, the config file will be read and converted to config directory format and written to the specified directory. If neither option is specified, an attempt to read the default config directory will be made before trying to use the default config file. If a valid config directory exists then the default config file is ignored.
 

LIMITATIONS

Your slapd(8) should not be running (at least, not in read-write mode) when you do this to ensure consistency of the database.

This command provides ample opportunity for the user to obtain and drink their favorite beverage.  

EXAMPLES

To reindex your SLAPD database, give the command:

        /usr/sbin/slapindex
