this is more of an OpenLDAP issue, but since it is mostly used with Samba, 
some experience would be helpful.

We have a SLES9 PDC, running samba-3.0.14a, openldap 2.2.6

Sometimes, the OpenLDAP gets corrupted, no ideas why. It's a bad thing.

We have 100+ computers, 300+ users, which shall get 350 computers and 800 

What would you suggest in order to be reliable ? Reliability is more important 
than speed for us.

I used to work with a bdb backend, had problems; the SuSE consultant told us 
to use ldbm, but it isn't any better.

Any advice would be helpful since googleling gives mostly contradictory 
information about that.

Kind regard,
